A Little Bit Of History: Kirkland is a small hamlet of two farms, six houses, a church dating back to the 11th century and our house and cottages 200 yards up the road from the church. Kirkland and all the surrounding land was given to a Norman Knight, William Le-Flemming by William the Conqueror in or around the year 1070. Most of the land was sold off over the centuries but our small farm remained in the Le-Flemming family until we bought it in 1975.
