14th February 2014: Brookfield House is located on "Boggart Lane"
off Swaine Hill Crescent, adjacent to Kirk Lane Allotments.
A boggart is said
to be an impish or mischievous spirit inhabiting woodland, marshy or boggy
This superstition is mainly confined to northern England, particularly
Lancashire and Yorkshire although place names with Boggard, Boggart, Bog etc
occur throughout the country.
catcher was once employed by Yeadon to deter these entities from disturbing the
good townspeople in the night !
