Diamond Jubilee

Diamond Jubilee

Okay here comes the question again, where was Moss Farm in Loftus, or do they mean Mars Farm? Terry Shaw came to our aid with: “n 2005 I wrote a book ‘The History of Loftus Cricket Club’ after an extensive search I was unable to trace Moss Farm. Redcar library have maps of Loftus dating back to the 1870′s and Moss Farm does not appear anywhere, I presume that the references mean Mars Farm.” and “After further research Moss Farm still cannot be found, however the reference could mean Marsh Farm which was the original name of the Mars Inn.”

Cutting from a collection gifted to the Archive, most of the cuttings coming from the Northern Echo and cover the period 1930 to 1940. Thanks to Terry Shaw for the researches and update.

    In 2005 I wrote a book ‘The History of Loftus Cricket Club’ after an extensive search I was unable to trace MossFarm. Redcar library have maps of Loftus dating back to the 1870′s and Moss Farm does not appear anywhere, I presume that the references mean Mars Farm.
