Asby resident, local historian and active volunteer Keith Cooper gives a fascinating insight into farming life at Halligill, a farmstead in the parish of Asby, back in 1875. It’s based on the diary of John Brunskill who farmed at Halligill for 30 years but ended up living at Dial House in Great Asby. Keith’s additional research together with the recollections of the late Harry Saul breathe new life into John Brunskill’s daily round on a small, mixed, upland hill farm.
