Herbert Oliver Perkins


Oliver Perkins (as he was known) worked a farmstead next to the cemetery in Church Lane. The 60 acres that he farmed in 1943 extended to the area of the Wold and 40 Acre Allotment. The land was farmed by Mr Perkins under the guidance of the War Department. Besides working on his farm he was also a member of Burton Latimer Home Guard. The land was used for crops and grazing for animals. He kept pigs and poultry.

In 1965 his farmstead experienced an arson attack. Click here for details.

This farm was detailed in the Wartime Survey in 1943
