Boulby Farm

Hummersea Farm

The photo caption says ’Farm near Boulby Cliff’ – it is confirmed as Hummersea Farm, but is  there anything else significant?

Anne Cammidge tells us: ”The photo shows the old cow bier buildings of Hummersea Farm. The building to the right was where the grain was kept and the flour grinder. The main farmhouse is set in the hill behind the trees. My mother Annie Hart was born and brought up here with sisters, Elsie, Ada, Mary,Hilda and brother Tommy Hart who eventually bought the farm from Lord Zetland. Uncle Tommy retired in the mid 80’s when he moved to Easington.”

Holly Enticknap has the following memories: ”We converted the cow bier into our home, and called it The Barns. I’ll always remember there was a bottle stuck to the wall in the cow bier, about 20feet up! We never did figure out why it was there as there was no way to reach that hight without ladders?”.

Thanks to Anne and Holly for the updates.
