I remember the Barwick’s of Low Hall, mainly because Low Hall was turned into a recovery unit for wounded RAF personnel in 1940.
Of course, as Lord of the Manor, we never made his acquaintance, although Sheila and I would sing carols there on Boxing Day, and be given summat, dunno what now.
He sent his gamekeeper with a wheelbarrow full of rabbits, two for each house up Gill Lane, for Xmas. We could trespass, as boys, by going through the tunnel that takes the Gill under Gill Lane, and it runs on Low Hall property, down to the old mill and Stone Top farm, and into the Aire from there.
