Ward's End

I don't know if there was a Ward who built this farmstead at the end of the cultivated land, on the edge of the moor of the Bowland Fells. However, looking at the ruin today, I can't help but feel that it was well-named!

"All beauteous things for which we live
By laws of time and space decay.
But oh, the very reason why
I clasp them, is because they die."
William Johnson Cory (1823-1892), English poet
