Farming and livestock (location 30)
After the marshy land in the parish had been drained and improved from the late 18th century, much of the parish was increasingly cultivated. Holme Farm near Lentran was also known for its raspberries in the second half of the 1900s. A number of farmhouses and large steadings still survive in the parish. Even bull’s houses survive at Lentran, now converted to housing. The Charlie Gair Photographic Collection illustrates farming activity from the 20th century.
