Shiel Farm
Shiel Farm
This farm is adjacent to an area of old limestone and coal workings and has waste bings from the coal pits quite close to the back of the farm buildings. The lands of Gilminscroft were noted for their output of lime to the local farms in the 18th and 19th centuries, which explains the rich green pasture found in an area where glacial till forms the surface material and where wet, boggy conditions should be the norm .
