I believe this is Diglee Farm, just below Disley Tops road.

Yes it is Chris.
Some years ago I went up there with my old mate Peter Jodrell. I can't remember why just now. But there didn't appear to be anyone at home so we left. I tried to reverse into the long grass but the front wheels dropped into a ditch and we were well and truly stuck. Then we saw a tractor in the field and waived him over. He had the most useless bit of rope and wire tied together and from over the wall pulled me out. I thought I was going to tip over but somehow didn't.
I asked the tractor driver how much I owed him but he refused any money. Later in the week I went to market and bought the most massive steak pie I had ever seen and took it back to the farm as payment.
Whilst there the farmers told us all about the farm and the land they owned which was the WB golf course and the plans to extend to 18 holes on their land. Of course it never happened but it is an interesting farm.
