We first visited this place a few weeks ago and were amazed to find the front door unlocked. However some idiot had forgot the torch, so went back yesterday to have a good look round (with a torch).

Jessie Chambers was eleven years old when her family left the cottage in The Breach in Eastwood to go to live at The Haggs Farm, Underwood, three miles away. As she later described it, "The house was long, the line of the roof was broken by a gable window which matched the porch over the front door. The farm buildings adjoined the house and formed one side of a square. From our front door, we looked down the length of the garden which was fenced off from the crew-yard, over a croft, and into the wood that shut us off completely from the West. We had a right of way through the Warren and across the meadow which brought us to the high road just above the reservoir, and this was the path that D. H. Lawrence usually took when he came to see us."

The small farm on the Barber Estate was a place that D.H.Lawrence always remembered . The picture was taken on a summer day in 1959.

This is what the place looks like today.
