Quorn Fields Farm History The Hickling family and farm sale in 1974

Quorn Fields Farm was situated down a long track off Barrow Road, now known as Flesh Hovel Lane, with the original part of the farmhouse being erected in the eighteenth century.

The Hickling family farmed here from the 1930s until it was sold in 1974; after which the farm became a private residence and much of the land was given over to forestry.

The attached document was written after talking to Ken Hickling who was brought up on Quorn Fields Farm and covers his life there up to its sale on 1974.

Quorn Fields Farm is not to be confused with Quorn Lodge Farm, which is today at the end of a long track leading off the One Ash roundabout on the main A6. Quorn Lodge Farm, especially when it was occupied by the Moss family (late 1800s to 1950s), was often called Quorn Fields Farm. This has led to confusion over the years, and is thought to have come about as the whole area of farmland to the north-east of Quorn was referred to as Quorn Fields.
