This was just a small dairy farm about which not a great deal is known. It extended eastwards along Portland Road from Portslade Station for about 300/400 yards to just about where the entrance to Greens factory is now. Above the railway line it took in the meadow east of the track (now Olive Road) where the houses of Isabel Crescent are while to the west it extended as far as the present Margery Road. Twenty cattle were kept in three stalls with grazing land along the Portland Road frontage and a large number of chickens were kept. Vegetable crops were grown on both sides of the railway and on two acres across Portland Road on the site of the present Portland Villas. The photograph was taken in 1893 when it was being farmed by W.H. Denyer.
