Seeking References to LEGG FARM at Blakeney Gloucestershire. The Farm is very close to Manchester House in Church Square Blakeney.

Hi
Strangely the larger scale old OS maps, which often show farm and large house names, don't do so in Blakeney for either Manchester House or Legg Farm.
However having found Manchester Ho via http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/en-353899-manchester-house-awre-gloucestershire#.WJm-DDuLRdg and then using thee postcode on Google Maps to find it.
I then looked at
https://www.old-maps.co.uk/#/Map/367217/206978/12/100954

I would suspect that Legg Farm is the building where the pink marker should appear.
You will need to zoom out in order to get a viewable scale unless you have an oldmaps subscription.

I have had a look at the 1911 census searching by street name. Church Square.
Couldn't find Manchester House or Legg farm but by searching prior entries (left side arrow) I have found a Farmer/Grazier working from home. The address just shows as Blakeney Glos.

Whether this is the occupant of Legg farm i don't know; but I suggest you might find another if you carry on searching  through Blakeney.
