Norlands Farm
Churchill Close

How it looked in the early days

The Norlands Farm area today

This land was part of Norlands Farm
Though long forgotten now,
It's many years since it last saw
A turkey or a cow!
But cherries grew a-plenty here
From orchards up and down,
Their blossom such a lovely sight
Folk came from miles around.
It's sad to think we'll never see
The sights these people saw,
Instead we've got our gardens
But no orchards anymore.

Norlands Farm disappeared under housing in the 1960s and 1970s. There were orchards here and also a turkey farm.
