Dagnam Park Farm
Dagnam Park Farm stood just south of the moat, Pyrgo Priory school was built on the site. The photograph below shows the farmhouse in 1920. If you look below at the map the farmhouse is orange and the photo is taken from the direction of the blue arrow. If you were to stand outside the school hall and look out towards the moat your line of view would have been obstructed by a Walnut tree, that tree stood in the farm garden and is marked with a green dot on the map. Sadly the tree which was in poor condition was removed in the early 90's. Another sad loss.
