Rate then, Danial Bell used to farm low laithe farm which is now owned by brian hough, half way down bells hill just before the m62, thats why its called bells hill,danials daughter rachell annie, went on to marry george copley, and took over the running of parkfield farm next to the brads, and who's decendants own farmer copleys farm shop.

Thomas day used to have the farm on the crossroads in north feath,hence the name days farm,his decendents brian and colin hough still own the farm.

I think adam hirst is the ancestor of david hirst, who still farms in acton.


joseph hemmingway's farm used to be right next to what is now feath technical college.

Monkroyde farm is now owned by cressey's.

Steven turveys farm is now farmer copley's farm shop.
