Greengate Cottage, Uplowman, where at least three generations of the family had lived

Several of my family have married at St Peter's Church, Uplowman, including my great-grandfather's sisters, Harriet Stone and Lucy Jane Stone. Their brothers, John Stone and Francis Stone and parents Henry Stone and Mary Ridgeway, my 2x great-grandparents, are buried in the churchyard. We didn't find the graves on this visit, not expecting them to have had the resources to afford headstones.

Whilst in Uplowman, we visited Widhays Farmyard (which has numerous Listed Buildings), which we'd gained permission to do in advance, to take some photos. Henry Stone had worked on this farm as an Agricultural Labourer.
