In the late nineteenth/early twentieth century Willy Philps (pronounced ‘Phipps’) and his sister Jessie took in washing here from Newport. The pond immediately to the east, on the FGN/FPC boundary, is still known locally as “Jessie Phipps’ Dam”.[240] For its relationship with modern Chesterhill FGN, see s.n. above.
