BOTTERNELL

Botternell Farm is on the B3254 opposite the turn to Kingbear. Most of the fields and woods which made up the farm are now owned by other farmers and it is now a group of five homes.

The present day Botternell is north of the parish boundary which divides North Hill from Linkinhorne. In the past it has been known as North Botternell, North Butternell and even Portindle. A few yards away to the south, across the parish boundary in Linkinhorne there was a farm known as South Botternell. It is sometimes difficult to know when looking at historical documents whether the writer, when writing ‘Botternell’ was referring to Botternell in North Hill, Botternell in Linkinhorne or an agglomeration of both, indicating a wider area.
