Views of Mill Farm

Mill Farm or The Mill House, as it is sometimes called, is in the English County of Herefordshire on the outskirts of a small village. The farmhouse is over 400 years old in parts and was originally the 'Millers house', with the actual Corn Mill being situated opposite in a nearby field. Sadly the Corn Mill had to be demolished for safety reasons but with local expertise and a lot of input from son William, our house has been restored and will no doubt be here for generations to come.

The changing seasons, the welcome visitors from far lands and our ever increasing family (two legged and four) makes life at Mill Farm very interesting. On these pages we would like to share with you the sights and surroundings of Mill Farm, life in a part of England that in some ways has changed beyond recognition and in others seems frozen in time.

These apples remaining on the trees at Mill Farm will be appreciated by the birds during this cold spell. To see apples on the trees in England in November is a rare sight, usually the leaves fall in October and the apples are blown from the trees by Autumn gales.
