Withernwick Grange c 1890

Sadly a rather poor quality photograph of a
very evocative scene.

The farm was run then and for a long time by the
Welford family, so we can guess that the people
in the photo are Welfords and their servant / labourers.

The haystacks are certainly a work of art,
locally these are known as pikes.

Below is the census details for
Withernwick Grange in 1891.
It is quite probable that it is Jane Welford on
 the horse and one of her brothers next to the horse.
