Views on and around Cogden Farm supplied by Frank and Mary Bailey
Marys Mum milking the cows
Burton long has had a boast,
And right well deserving;
For pretty maids a standing toast,
Of natures sweet preserving
(extract from the Song of the Burton Volunteers)
Cows being driven past The White House in the village.
The next four pictures show a sheep drive of some 300 sheep through the village from Cogen Farm
to the sheep dip above Freshwater on Bunny Lenythall's (Manor) Farm above Freshwater in the early 1960's
Traffic obviously wasn't so heavy in those days!
Peter & Theresa Bailey (twins) driving the sheep up the High Street towards to sheep dip on the other side of the village
The sheep in the field above Freshwater where they were being dipped
Here Peter & Theresa are taking the sheep home past a digger which was cutting out the cliff at
Cheney's Garage on the coast road to enlarge the forecourt
And finally, the sheep finding it a tight squeeze in Litton Lane before turning right back into Cogden Farm..
