Vicar of Clifton

Rev Joseph Hetherington was appointed vicar in 1850 and held office for 32 years. He died in c.1882. He was my great grandfather and was notable apparently for starting a school. Also notable for refusing to have piped water in the vicarage so the story has it.

The Butcher

I remember the first time I was in the village after the butcher had been slaughtering pigs. There was blood being channelled from the slaughterhouse down the road to another part of the shop where he was going to make black pudding. It took me years before I could even look at black pudding after that, let alone eat it

Low Lodge Farm

I remember my first job was on Low Lodge Farm. We had to milk the cows and the milk went into 10 gallon churns which we had to wheel up to the top of the yard and lift onto the milk stand for the wagon to pick up. I was 15 at the time and those churns seemed like they weighed a ton.
The farm has gone now, and four house are in its place.


Great Clifton was a great village as a child. I'm only 16 now but I think it's great to learn about its history.
