Sykes Farm Trough of Bowland
Sykes Farm Trough of Bowland
Taken from Sykes Nab. The farm was occupied by an ancestor of my mothers in the 1790's called William 'Wild Will' Whitaker a skinner who moved there from Skin House Grindleton. He farmed Sykes farm with his brother in law 'Darned Dick' Richard Place so called because of his darned clothes. It said at that time if you put a bucket in the beck for water there would be a salmon in it.
