Ollerenshaws Farm.

Here is a postcard supplied by Werneth Low.
It shows Ollerenshaws Farm which stands on Werneth Low Road over to the Greave side..
I'm not sure if the present name is still the same.

Thank you so much for solving this mystery for me. Next time I'm over I'll have a ride up and take a look.

I would love to know more about this farm, being an Ollerenshaw with ancestors in the area. Would Werneth Low fill me in on the mystery that has been solved?

Hi Gillian - not really a mystery as such. I've had the postcard of the farm for years but could never find out where it was or how it got its name. Being an Ollerenshaw like you, I was interested. Now I need to go and see it!
