Farms near Lapworth and Henley, Warwickshire
« on: Thursday 31 March 16 17:59 BST (UK) »
(Not sure whether I should have posted this under Warwickshire look-ups)

I was wondering whether anyone is familiar with the countryside in the above area.

My ancestors seem to have been tenant farmers at different farms in the above area in the and I am interested to see them, but not if they have been turned into grandiose houses or whatever.

The farms were:

Hole House Farm, Lapworth
Beaudesert Farm
Hill Top Farm
Pink's Farm
Lower Liveridge Hill Farm
Waterloo Farm (though the address for this is Hockley Heath (1911) I think it probably stood near the previous two).

This looks like Pinks Farm and Lower Liveridge Hill Farm on a map http://maps.nls.uk/view/101585317#zoom=4&lat=5033&lon=6456&layers=BT

Edit Beaudesert Park is on the southern  edge of the map

Thank you Kay99. Looks like they are quite close to a road. I'll have to go for a "drive" on Google Street View.

It's only 7,000 a month to rent.  What a snip!

Many thanks for these, STG. I think that "farmhouse" is just a bit on the pricey side! I should think that my great grandmother would turn in her grave. (She died aged over 90 in the early '60's.)
