Mrs Eileen Hodgson and her late husband, Stan, were well respected hill farmers in the Hope Valley, North Derbyshire and during the 1980s kept the Upperbooth flock of Suffolk Sheep. This weather vane was made for the Hodgsons by Eileen's nephew, who is an agricultural engineer, shortly before they retired and was never erected. It is being offered for sale before the first lot of sheep at the Beeston Sale of Suffolk females on Saturday November 1st. The proceeds from its sale will go to "Help The Heroes" a charity which was very dear to Stan Hodgson.
It is a really beautiful item and well worth bidding for!
