Hi Paul,

Is this the same farm?

Outbreak of cattle disease. On Sunday last an alarming outbreak of foot-and -mouth disease broke out on the farm of Mr Moses Plant, Bings Wood Farm. Two out of a herd of a dozen cattle were affected.

An infected area. Notices were posted in the district stating that the highway known as Bugsworth Old road, from the Gnat Hole Schools to Whaley Bridge Turns, is an infected area under the act, in consequence of foot-and-mouth disease having broken out on a farm at Bings Wood.
