About this image
Mr Peter Barret on his tractor was a member of an old farming family. He farmed on Long Lane with his son Tony. His land covered the area of the Landside Housing Estate down to the main road. There were gates onto the main road by the railway bridge and this is where Hibert's brought their fairground ride each year to coincide with the parish church anniversary in July each year, also it was the venue for circuses. The Barretts moved to Combs Owlgreave Farm as soon as the Long Lane land was sole. This was early 1960's.
