    I think Northfield was built in the 60’s. I remember Mount Pleasant as a farm, if my memory serves me correctly it was owned by a Mr Webber + the field were Northfield is was his, think we used to have village fetes there.

      Thank you for that info. I’ll add to my files on those subjects. I can only think that Mount Pleasant was known as a farm as the owner of the house either bought or rented some fields and operated as a small-holding. It certainly had no history of being a farm. I believe Hedley Salter of Yew Tree House used to graze a dairy cow or two in Northfield in the mid-1900s, but I don’t know who owned the field then.
