“The bridge over the Dighty, at Monifieth has certainly been a crossing point for many centuries. …
Just found a milk bottle from Milton of Monifieth Dairy in farmyard in Gloucestershire. Well travelled! Would be fascinated to find out why it made it this far.
Interested to know when the dairy opened and closed in order to date the bottle.”
Please find attached a photo of the milk bottle dug up in a farmyard in Driffield Gloucestershire.
Fascinating to hear that you are connected with the dairy.
Our President has just emailed me and said…..
We also have a half pint one, with `tuberculin tested` printed with the name.
We love to hear of stories like this. Please keep them coming.

The Milton Dairy bottle takes me back to my school days when I had a milk round with Ron Forbes. I also at one time washed the bottles and filled them for the next days deliveries. We would also pick the milk up in churns from Balmossie Farm, which was owned by the Reid’s at that time, on the rear platform of the lorry which was used for delivering.(This would not be allowed today).I also knew Ron’s wife Maureen who went to school with my mum.
