This photo was loaned to John Abbott by Gay Baggaley and she thinks it was taken by Maurice Baggaley in the late 1970s or the early 1980s.


It shows an aerial view of Valley Farm, on the corner of Welbournes Lane and Main Road Long Bennington, that was farmed by the Baggaley Family for many years. In the top right hand corner of the photo can be seen the early housing development down Winters Lane and over the years this whole area has been developed.


The lorry parked next to the Dutch Barn used to be driven by David Chandler, who worked for a Newark Haulage firm, and he parked it there overnight.
