If this is what used to be Cunliffes Farm at the top end of the brow,it was re-built in the late 1960s, maybe early 70s. Don't know if anything has been done since then, as I left the area. Many many times as a child, I walked up and down that brow with a jug in my hand to go get a pint of milk from that farm, that's when it was a working farm..

My mother used to visit the farm, she was friendly with Emma Cunliffe! who later was my teacher at Our Lady's
