The Mawsons' came to Bailey Ground Farm in 1947, and have farmed here ever since. The family now consists of Ken & Kate, their sons Stephen & Richard, their partners Liz & Sarah, and Caitlin, Molly, Ellie, Megan and Oliver.
Our ancestors have farmed on many of the farms in this area through the centuries. In fact they farmed at Fleming Hall, a mile from Bailey Ground, in 1596.
Our Grandmother, Jane Moore and her family farmed at the Howe Farm in Seascale in the 1930s from where they ran a milk round delivering twice a day. She made butter to sell on the round and she also showed it at the National Dairy Show in London and ornamental butter at the local Shows.
