Growing Up

Here is Upper Winskill, the farm where Tom grew up. It is here where he worked hard on the farm and was inspired to write about the beauty of the landscape and the joys of going to market in Settle!

Tom attended Settle National School, for which his father would have paid for him to attend.

Many local children grew up years later hearing the poem Lile Bobby, a poem written by Tom for his own son, Robert.
