The farm lies between St. James's Church (spire visible in background) and Riddings Hall. In the 1870's, the farm steward/bailiff was Charles Richard CHAMBERLAIN, a native of Riddings. He married Ann Ellen Edwick COOK, the daughter of Somercotes butcher, George Edwick COOK (born Suffolk) and his wife, Ann HOYLAND of Brackenfield.
