Gathering first wave of farm stuff to go from here (our house has been over stocked for years). We also have furniture in storage from Robin’s folks. Just gathering it all together- I could go into business !
I think one key fact that hasn’t emerged is that Thorneythwaite isn’t a viable farm now – that’s why the remnants who’ve been there for generations have moved to a bigger farm. Also the herdwicks will be staying & other local farmers taking them on- so the sheep stay, the farm will be loved and developed (in a very tasteful & sensitive way!) and the land protected for the future. Right noe we’re keeping heads down & trying to hang onto the vision!
