Reddish Vale Farm

Reddish Vale Farm was constructed in the mid 19th century, on land which had once formed part of the Reddish Hall Estate.

 

George Watson farmed here in the early 1900's, the Stockton family took it over and ran it for over sixty years.

In the early 1990's local people prevented the now council-owned farm from development.
