The Historic Gill Measure.

When Lord and Lady Astor remodelled White Place Farm into a dairy farm, which began producing Tuberculin Tested milk by 1937. It became the very first dairy farm in the country to go TT attested.
Holy Trinity School was one of the first schools to receive this milk at the cost of one half penny per day. It came in the Gill size milk bottle, which in those days was the smallest liquid measure in commercial use on the farm.
