Ligoniel and The Farm - RBL 101 [????- ]

Ligoniel belonged to Francis Henry May, who as acting Governor pushed through the Peak District Reservation Ordinance in 1904.

 

"Our house on the Peak was called Ligoniel after some property in Ireland owned by my father's family."

"View from the Peak: an autobiography" by Phoebe May Witworth (2nd daughter of Frances Henry May)

Later purchased by Alexander Findlay Smith, the builder of the Peak Tram, and renamed (or rebuilt into "The Farm")

This piece of land is very close to the Peak Tram, and you can walk there - and get a lovely view.  There is an old foundation, but it may be for the second house on this lot.

Go down Findlay Path toward the Barker Rd Peak Tram Station (or alight at Barker Rd and walk up.  It is fun to get off somewhere other than the top).
