In 1925 the whole estate of 258 acres with tenant Robert Stock of Haselor Grounds, farming the land, Tom Baseley renting Walcote Farm house, and tenants in the cottages, was sold as one lot for 5500. My grandfather, Edward Finnemore, who was farming at New End Farm, Great Alne, was the purchaser.
 
My grandfather went to the auction sale just to see how much it would make. It wasn't sold. The next day the auctioneer went to see my grandfather and said "I saw you at the sale Mr Finnemore, are you interested in it?"

Acres were divided into roods and perches. 40 perches made 1 rood and 4 roods made 1 acre.
