From Pits to Joy


In answer to Morris Jephcott’s question regarding a burial site somewhere in Pestilence Lane for victims of the Black Death: As a child growing up in Hopwood, I remember a farm called Black Pits, which I was told got its name from a pit on its land which was a burial site for victims of the Black Death.

This farm was later renamed Jingle Joy and is now the Cramar Cat Sanctuary.
