Farms - Notes

Extract from Council Meeting Dec 1932
An application was also received from Mr. John Edwin Chettle, of No. 63, Duck-street, to be registered as a cowkeeper and wholesale purveyor of milk at his farm and dairy on the Kimbolton-road, Rushden.  The application was granted.

Burnt Out - Thatched Barn Destroyed

A dangerous outbreak of fire was fortunately noticed by a Kettering motorist passing through Rushden just before 3a.m. on Sunday morning. As reported elsewhere he gave the alarm, and the Fire Brigade succeeded in saving the adjoining cottage, a stack of oats, a rick of hay and other property. The barn belonged to Mr. Jeremiah Knight of the High Street [South].
