The Dillon family have lived at the Grove since the 1700 and farmed mostly cattle and sheep. We were originally tenants of the Rothwell estate, in 1903 my grandfather, also named Pat bought out the lease and demolished the original house.
He built the existing house in its more colonial style rather than Victorian or Georgian.
We have a family tree going back to 1790 which has be
en updated by each generation to the present day. There are five of us in the family today, Pat, Therese (Parents) Ben, Lucy and Joe (siblings).
All the family take an active part in the running of Grove Gardens and Open Farm.
