Back to Frampton, Tanhouse Farm was a Working Farm milking 95 cows, growing 40 acres of corn with a small number of beef cattle. Having always had a fascination for trees it was decided to put the farm into forestry. In the autumn/winter of 1998/99 Nebrow Hill Oak Wood was created, 110,000 trees were planted mainly hardwoods: oak, ash, walnut, sycamore etc. producing timber for the future and providing a wonderful wildlife habitat.
Coarse fishing is available in Frampton on the canal. Clay Pigeon shooting can be arranged on the premises.
