reader request: anyone remember this place?

One of my readers is trying to find information out on this old farm that used to be in her husband’s family. It was his grandfathers farm. His family later sold the property to Church  Farms School and it is believed that it was used for dormitory and other uses. 

It was on Swedesford Road. I do not know if pieces of it still exist or not. If you have any information please leave it in the comments. 

These photos were taken in the 1950s. The farm was somewhere near the intersection of Ship Road and Swedesford

  1. The old house is located off of Chester valley road which runs between Ship road and Bacton hill road, the house has been completely renovated. From the outside driving by it – it looks beautiful – all the stained glass windows were resorted that had been covered for years. It is one road back from Swedesford Road – I used to live at the old house (recently demolished) on Swedesford Road – next to the crooked wooden bridge (now re-built too)
