Brookfold Farm 2010


I last showed you Brookfold Farm in May 2008.

This view is taken from the top of the bridge which used to carry the former Godley to Apethorn railway over Brookfold Lane which you can see on the right.

I like the misty gray look to this scene. Seems like a very peaceful place.

As if moving towards the light, however have to admit, that it might be a challenge to live inside this lonely house.
Please have a wonderful Thursday.

It looks like a farm where I used to pick potatoes when I was a schoolgirl.
The mists make it look alluring, yet a little mysterious...
Not sure if i would go there on Halloween ;)

Another nice picture Gerald.

Knowing most of these scenes personally, its fascinating to see some of the images you manage to pick out of them!

I spent much of my spare time at Brookfold Farm from the age of six to 15 (1954 to 1963), and later, as a friend of the farmer's (Jack) son Billy. Billy has now converted the barn into a house for him and his family while his elder sister Pauline lives in the old house and Billy's younger sister and her family built a new house where the cottage was. Henry, Jack's father was alive but semi retired when I was a child. Now it's just our generation, in our late fifties, early sixties and the next generation or two, but the old house carries on. Jack used to tell us about the ghost dog in the lane and stuff like that, but we weren't scared.

Cheers,

Bob
