Aerial photograph August 1977

This interesting photo came into our possession today, and shows the farm buildings as they were in August 1977, almost 40 years ago. The main points to note are:-
- the campsite of our neighbours Bosavern House Bed and Breakfast used to be a large vegetable garden;
- the stable block at the entrance to the community farm was still standing, whereas only the back wall still remains today;
- the farm was used almost solely for dairy cows;
- the well in Home Field was not in use (we have recently recommissioned the well to provide water to irrigate our vegetable crops).
Please compare this photo to that in the blog post of August 2016, showing an aerial photo of the farm from the previous summer.
