Nuns Cross Farm, Dartmoor. (smile on Saturday - Song title)

In 1870 labourer John Hooper built the walls of Nun's Cross Farmhouse with stones collected by his wife.
According to archived records, the couple were left with little money and a just a single cow.
After a couple of years however their hard work began to pay off and the pair began to make a profit through the farm work: around £100 a year.
The farm was used by a succession of families until around 1929 when it fell into disuse.

Inspired by the Animals House Of The Rising Sun
