  1. The wall on the other side of this view of the Farmhouse was cracked from top to bottom during WW2 when the bomb load of a crashed aircraft from RAF Thornaby was exploded. The aircraft had crashed on take off, a fire had broken out and the bomb load “cooked” . The next day after the crash the RAF had to move the Cows from warming their backsides of the still warm wreckage before they decided that as the bomb load had been “cooked” that the bombs were too dangerous to move and decided to blow the wreckage up in situ.


    • This is very interesting, there is a planning dispute about the land adjacent to Thorntree farm. I would love more information
