Old Arbury: Visual - Aerial View of Manor Farm In The 1950s And The Same Area In Recent Years. Spot The Farmhouse Garden Boundary!
After the farm was bought by Cambridgeshire County Council in 1909, the house was let to the Medlow family, and, after they left, became the residence of two County Land Agents in succession.
There were also four semi-detached cottages at the farm, plus the foreman/horse keeper's house. A detached cottage was added in the 1920s.
As mentioned before on this blog, the boundary of the farmhouse garden has been 'immortalised' in the old Manor School/North Cambridge Academy boundary, which was erected around it.
Compare the 1950s photograph below with the one above and spot the boundary! 'Easy peasy!' as we used to say. If not, just use my little yellow arrow!
