Chapel Hill Farm

 Taken standing within the boundaries of Holy Trinity, the road forks left up into Chapel Hill farm, this was once an impressive dwelling with seven bedrooms, 2 reception rooms, 2 dining rooms and two kitchens, many families lived here over the years, the Baileys, Hudson's, Simpson's and the Holmes all lived here.

Mr. Tom Bell and and his wife Edith, formerly Hindmarch once rented the left hand side upper and lower rooms in the big house for ten shillings a week, while he worked the horses for Tom Bell at Grove Brae Farm, and Tom Bell Himself once worked here at Chapel Hill, before he got the sack for letting his dog sook the hens eggs from their nests, a real expert was Moss the sheepdog at emptying the contents and leaving the shells intact.

 

 

 Looking westward up hill from Chapel Bridge towards Chapel Hill, with the island of Wood Howe on the right hand side of the road, the church is just out of view to the right of the farm, but the tops of the large Yews can be seen poking their heads over the brow of the hillside.
