 My Great Grandfather George Green rented this farm from about 1851 to about 1900.

 The area he farmed is outlined by the blue line. In the last century many hedges have been removed; the number of fields has been reduced from twelve to six. He rented this farm when there was no longer land available for him to farm in Kingsthorpe. He left the farm after a railway was built through the farm. If you should want to visit Long Furlong; Bed and Breakfast is now available there.
