Top or Upper?
Top or Upper?
The two signs have different names, but maps consistently show Top Brackendale Farm. The farm has been part of the Crown Estate since 1925, with the Cockayne family as tenant farmers, but it seems that the Crown Estate has only started installing its own name plates in recent times. The name Brackendale stems from the name of the old medieval open field on this side of Bingham.
Brackendale Farms, Bingham :: SK6939
The name is derived from the old medieval open field to the south west of Bingham, which was called Brackendale Field.
Until the 1950s OS maps, Top Brackendale Farm was unnamed, with lower Brackendale Farm being simply named Brackendale Farm. The farms were taken into the Crown Estate in 1925, and the Brackendale Farms have been tenanted by the Cockaynes since 1935.
The farms are now operated as a single unit, the basic crops being wheat, barley, oil-seed rape and sugar beet.
