Easter Oakenhead
There is something curious about the name of this ruined farm. On the 1874 Ordnance Survey map, and on all subsequent OS maps until 1982, it is marked as Easter Oakenhead. On the current maps, however, it is named Coral Peel, and there is a record of an application to build an extension at Coral Peel in 1971, but there is no sign that the extension was ever built. My thanks to Peter Ross, who tells me that his family was the last to live there. He himself left in 1966, but his father stayed on into the 1970s.
