Picnic Time

On the back of this image is written: ”On August 10th. 1927 in Bell’s Farm Grounds Salvation Army children’s picnic, Reggie and Kenneth were there and they were all taken on Tom Dart’s coal cart.  The lady on the right standing is Sally Padgett and the lady kneeling on the right is Mrs Allsop.”

Do you know anyone else that is there?   Note how clean everybody looks, obviously the cart was well cleaned for such an outing!

Bells Farm is what is now known as Kilton Hall Farm, Kilton Lane. The bank up which you travel from Carlin How, used to be called Bells bank, later Blackett’s bank and until recently Ramsey Hall’s bank (Ramsay Hall was father of Richard Hall the present occupant of Kilton Hall). Fiona Jenner writes: ”I was very interested to see this photograph as I think it includes my great-great grandfather Thomas Dickinson Wright (third from right on the back row). He was originally from Boston in Lincolnshire but married a Yorkshire girl Anne Smith in Loftus. They moved around quite a bit but in 1917 were living in Tin City in Boulby. Their link to Skinningrove could be that one of their daughters, Elsie, married a Shelley and lived there (Tina Dowey’s grandmother)

    Bells Farm grounds would be at the back of the farm house on Bells farm. This was at the top of Bells Bank, later called Blacketts bank and then in recent years Ramsey Halls bank. It is what is known as Kilton Hall farm. 1/2 a mile up Kilton lane past the Bullit pub on your way to Lingdale.

    This was Bells farm for many years, and there was an area at the back where there were orchards. I remember as a child seeing groups of people having Picnics there. So I feel sure this is where it would be although I accept correction if there was another Bells farm in the area. Sally Padgett and Tom Dart were both Skinningrove folks so it would seem right.
