- History Note: Brandhall Farm was listed in the early 19th century as Brant Hall Farm, and was farmed by a Mr Richard Miller, who was the tenant. The farm produced swedes and turnips, for animal fodder, as well as growing crops of wheat and barley. A large portion of the farm was set aside for dairy purposes and Richard Miller gained a widespread reputation for his Longhorn cattle. In additions he had large numbers of sheep, and he seems to have specialised in what were known in the early 1800s as new English Leicesters and to maintain his large flock he purchased rams from breeders in Leicestershire and Nottingham every year. During the mid-19th century Brandhall Farm became the home of Squire Monckton. In 1903 some of the lands at Brandhall Farm were leased out to create the then, 9-hole Brandhall Golf Course, and the farm house eventually became the club house for Brandhall Golf Club. The house was eventually demolished probably in the 1970s.
