MY ancestor Christopher Barraclough is recorded as resident here in 1891, a farmer, I don't know how long he lived here unfortunatley. He was the son of John & Elizabeth, innkeepers of the Old Peacock Inn in Beeston and married an Elizabeth Bride. she died 1903 in Wakefield Lunatic Asylum. Can you add any more information to the history of this family please? Are you related?

According to maps of Old Beeston, the orientation of this photograph is such that if you drew a vertical line away to the left, it would represent Town Street. The Cardinal Estate would be at quite some distance, off to the right. As kids, we used to play around in this area. There were a lot of fields then. It was a great playground. The reference to the laundry van reminds me that the The Co-op Laundry was also on this site.

I lived at Red Hall Farm from 1979 until 1998. The house belonged to my Stepfather and his family from the 1950's until he sadly passed away in 2010. The house holds many happy memories for me and my family.

My Grandfather Bernard Briggs lived here for near 50 years, had it purchased for him at an auction by his father. Very strange to see such old pictures of it.

I lived in this house from 1955 . It was a family home filled with love and warmth some sad times but also some very happy memories so sad to see it as it is now. Times move on and nothing ever stays the same but it will stay in my heart forever.
