In 1915 Monty Read arrived together with a herd of milking cows who had walked into Salisbury railway station from Downton, they loaded onto a train which came to Woodborough station 3 miles from Stanton. From there they walked to Church Farm to be milked.
Monty arrived as a tenant of the Pembroke estate and in 1917 he purchased Church Farm when the whole village was auctioned. The farm is still actively farmed by the family.
