THIS house in Millstone Lane, Nantwich, used to be a
farm called Ash Tree Farm, I understand. In recent years it has undergone
a refurbishment, possibly carried out by one man. That is, any time I walked
past there seemed to be just one man working on it - the current owner?
It was a farm in very
recent living memory. I know that because Nantwich
historian Andrew Lamberton tells me
there were farm fields behind the building that reached to The Mount (off Crewe Road). He saw
them when he played tennis at the old courts of Nantwich Tennis Club which now has premises at Windy Arbour,
off the Alvaston roundabout on the A530 Middlewich Road.
Andrew took the photograph, above right,
around 30 years ago.
