The ruins of Picker Hill Farm
The ruins of Picker Hill Farm
The ruin of Picker Hill Farm is on the left. In the centre under a covering of mud is the well paved farm road/yard. The 1844 Ordnance Survey map describes this farm as “Pickering’s” though it is not known where this name came from or who lived there at that time. About 1883 to 1887 the farm was occupied by a family called Holdsworth. In 1901 the Ramsbottom family, farmers and weavers, lived here and were probably the last occupants as it is thought that the farm was abandoned early in the 20th century.
