20 Objects 05 Padfield Dairy Bottle (2)

Pages Farm is located in the Shepherds Hill area of Upminster Common. An earlier name, Tithe Farm, belies that it once belonged to Upminster Hall. Described in the Victoria County History of Essex (1978) as a late medieval building with 16th century insertions and a 17th century wing rebuild. It survives as a residential property but research suggests there are still Padfields farming in the Havering area today.
