1900's ? College Farm. Rob Shepherd comments "My Dad lived at Kensit Memorial College back in the 1920's, just over on Hendon Lane so the farm etc. was his play area as a kid. Then my Uncle Les “Nobby” Rutherford was a milkman out of the Express Dairy depot that was on the farm at the time. I loved going there when out and about, Mrs Greenway used to take me and David on long walks to there and the 'Naked Lady' statue (I was always disappointed)."

1900's? College Farm/ Frith Manor Farm, Suffolk Punch Team. Elisabeth Torry comments "My Dad, Syd Whatling, worked at College Farm sometimes. He was a farrier based at Frith Manor Farm where we lived from around 1947. There were two horses who lived on the farm. Taffy who looked similar to the ones here and Babs (Ashfield Sensation); they both went to various shows. When there were no longer any horses he worked in the yard at Hendon Quadrant, in the late 50's. I used to pop in on the way home from Kilburn Polytechnic and ask him if I could go out that night, then say to my Mum 'Dad said I could go out'. After that he worked at Tithe Farm. He was a lovely man and great father". (Courtesy Paul Smith)
