Hello every one, my 1st post
« on: November 07, 2011, 09:22:39 AM »
May I first say hello hello to everyone on the forum, my name is Barry, I am not too sure if you will want to hear from me ever again, but I was serching on the net and came across Bing maps, very simlar to Google maps, and I was looking at Holling Hall as everybody knows is the location where they filmed Follyfoot, and in the aerial view they seem to have knocked down one of the stable buildings, I know that they have extended most of the orignal buildings, but it does seem a shame to knock one down after all the years that they have been there, perhaps someone can have a look, and hopfully they will tell me I am wrong.

Hello Barry

Welcome to the forum  >11<

You are correct, one of the barns has been knocked down. The Harewood estate recently sold the barns to the owner of the farm house.

On our trip to the farm for the Follyfoot 40th event the owner of Hollin Hall kindly agreed to let us look around his property. "Steve's" barn has been very tastefully refurbished  :)

My own personal opinion is I would have liked the farm to stay as it was but others here have the opinion that life moves on.   ;)  :)

There's a thread about it HERE

Hope you enjoy the forum and look forward to chatting with you more.  8)

Thanks every one, I am just glad that I was not the bringer of bad news about the stable block being demolished.
