It is amazing how something as large as Carlton Grange farm could have disappeared, it must have taken a deliberate effort to eradicate it - there is nothing left now of this large country estate with its many farm buildings apart from woodland.

Carlton Grange Farm, circa 1912

Carlton Grange Farm used to be big enough to field its own cricket team.

By 2000 (approx) in this aerial photograph (left) there is no trace of any of the buildings of Carlton Grange of Carlton Grange.. And by 2005 over half of what looks like a central grassed area has been planted with trees. The top third of the wood is also relatively new (sometime since 1945).

In 1837 Mr Nash lived at Carlton Grange (see newspaper article), but he died on the 16th April 1844, at the age of 72 (see newspaper article).

In 1878 Mr Thomas Nash of Carlton Grange died.

Up to 1904 it was farmed by James Mitchell Robertson, when he filed for receivership. The causes of the failure were given as "want of capital, want of labour, and a strange district." (see newspaper article)
