Hi all I was walking the dogs down moreton shore and i noticed the farm house on the left was being done up. I know frank biddle the farmer owned it just wondered if any one had any info as to when it was built and who owned it alos if developers had bought it. it is looking rather tidy from what i can remeber it was

not being picky here, but as far as i know pasture farm was where the ambulance / health centre are now.
biddles were one of the oldest families in moreton, and i always knew it as biddles farm. i used to go there as a sprog for straw for my rabbits.

That would be Lingham Lane. Frank Biddle did own that house, but i think he was retired and only kept a couple of cows on the field over the road.

frank did own the farm before he passed away and his brother john still farms the land , frank had a daughter and a son and they are modernising the house to sell i believe along with the land, franks sister lives in lingham farm which is down the lane from the lighthouse her son in law is a mate of mine and he and his family live there also, before frank moved from pasture road where the tarran estate is now i think one of titch masons relatives lived in the house
