I’ve found an old photo marked ‘Errwood Farm’ (above). But haven’t been able to find it marked on any of the old pre-reservoirs maps. But I’m now wondering whether it’s the buildings shown on the map below as ‘Errwood’. I think the curved stone walls on the fields opposite could be those marked ‘Barker Brow’ on the map.
I no longer live in Buxton, otherwise I’d nip out to check. But I think I can recall some stones in the grass around here which could well have been the ruins of Errwood Farm. So if anyone fancies a challenge, it would be great to answer Sarah’s quest to find where her grandparents had lived. And any photos would be an added bonus – particularly if you could get the same angle with the field walls in the distance.
