CAULDRON BARN

 
   What was predominately farmland and countryside has as usual been overtake by residential property and the proverbial caravan park. Cauldron Barn Farm, incorporating a 16th Century, we think, farmhouse, is no different in that respect and the picture demonstrates how large the caravan parks can become.
  In this instance over the last few years some of the land has been given up to residential property and more recent inflated prices.
It might be that the caravans might disappear completly, but one has to consider that not everybody nowadays goes abroad, a trend going back into the seventies, when foreign travel become much more affordable and package holiday prices took more people into holidays abroad rather than in the coastal resorts like Swanage.
  That trend could in fact reverse.  
  Farm property has for many years become popular as residential, making use of the many acres that go with a farm as recreation space.

  We have a note from Kelly's 1915 Directory of a William Lane, a farmer, of Cauldron Barn.

  More recently the aquistion of a Jonathan Ross.
