Description:A shooting party at Highlows Farm. The house still stands. Note the pretend window painted top right to give the house a more symmetrical appearance - behind this was the attic staircase. On the right in the background can be seen the duck pen and pig sty.

Highlows Farm was owned by Lord Stafford and was the home of farmer George Foxley (born 1856) and his wife Alice (bord 1855). They can be seen seated fourth and fifth from left. Their son John Edward Foxley (born 1883) may also be in this photograph. The Foxleys farmed at Highlows for many decades.
