Norman Swindlehurst

Norman Swindlehurst lived and farmed at Brackengarth Farm in Keasden, in the Ribble Valley. His father James Swindlehurst, who suffered from rheumatic fever, had moved from Barrow-in-Furness to the healthier countryside of Keasden in 1896. The family kept a few calves and reared sheep on the moors on the 40-acre farm at Brackengarth from 1896 until they moved to bigger farms in 1932.
