ABC Wednesday: C is for
Cheetham's Cattle

These two photo's were taken in 2000 at the Gee Cross Fete. Cheetham and sons farm on Werneth Low and used to deliver milk all around the Hyde area. These belong to the Longdendale Herd of Pedigree Red Poll cattle.

I thought that Mr Cheetham had retired from farming a few years ago, but have since learnt that although they no longer have a milk round they are still busy producing.

For more C posts visit ABC Wednesday.
