The Sale of Thixendale 1941
In 1941, Sledmere sold off some outlying portions of the Estate, including a number of properties in Thixendale. The original sale catalogue has been obtained and it is reproduced here. It provides a fascinating overview of the village at that time, detailing who was living in the properties, their landholdings and rents.
We are very grateful to Mr. S. Lyus for providing us with the copy of the original sale catalogue.
