Intro (Current Owners) 
0' x 0' (0m x 0m)
We have lived at Quaker Root for over 20 years. Our children were teenagers when we moved here, now they have left and have families of their own. The grandchildren love to visit and investigate the hidden corners of the garden and enjoy helping to pick fruit, and of course eating it. Quaker Root was registered as a Quaker meeting house in the early 1700's and it is likely that a Quaker wedding ceremony took place here. It seems to be a place where are reluctant to leave, as there has only been 3 owners since the 1st world war. It is the only listed property in the Parish of Hothersall.
