Does anyone know anything of this place?

According to Census Returns some of my relatives lived there.

I've tried Googling but without much luck.

I have a feeling that it may have been part of an 'Estate'.

I'd be grateful of any information.

Yes, Id have thought it would be the hunting kennels on an estate. Go to the census image and click backwards to find the name of the big house.

ALTHOUGH, hang on I just googled and found a war memorial entry for a chap whose addy is given as Croxton Kennels - so it may be a long standing name for a hamlet? BUT also on a google found this:

Croxton Park is a large red-brick manor house with wooded grounds and a lake, the historic seats of the Leeds family. The 13th century church is St. James.

The description definitely didn't fit you.............deleted

Shouldn't have assumed........should I?

Just shows what damage is being done by the serial unnamed 'referrer'

Not a problem at all Reggie.

Have been called one of those things but not both together

;-)

Was not sure about the email addy being a personal one so did ask the Team if it was okay or not.
