Sheep dipping at Cannop, Gloucestershire c. 1913.

Sheep dipping at Cannop

Sheep Dipping at Cannop - legend.

Sheep Dipping at Cannop around 1913.
Geoff wrote (Feb 2008): "This photo of sheep dipping at Cannop, was taken about 1913 and shows William Watkins and his children".
1 - William Watkins (my father)
2 - (mostly hidden) Fred Watkins
3 - Frank Watkins
4 - (partly hidden) Selena Watkins
5 - Florence Watkins
6 - Ada Watkins
7 - Ben Watkins
8 - William Watkins (my grandfather).

"The name of the photographer is H. Warren, 19, St. Mary Street, Monmouth".

Because sheep roamed free in the Forest, sheep dipping also often took place in the Forest itself.

Geoff says the exact location is in the wood coming from Broadwell on the left just before Cannop Crossroads, and the water is flowing from an old mine working.
