There are a number of photos of Tarden Farm and nearby buildings in the Virtual History Tour.

If you go to the search page and put in "Tarden" you should find 6 images including the one below:

Of course you could try a search for Bradbury and Taylor too and see what comes up.

The most exciting option for you though (if you haven't already done  this) is to search Marple Local History Society's online Archive:

This brings up quite a few snippets on Tarden, bit of stuff on Bradbury, and scores several direct hits on Taylor with recollections of an Alice Taylor who looks like it could be your daughter in law's relative from Mellor.

Enjoy looking! And if you need any more information contact Marple Local History Society via this link:

not sure if this is the best place to post but thought it worth a try

I have been tracing for my daughter in law whose Great Grand mother is Alice Ann Bradbury...Alice married Joe Taylor in 1905 and they are both buried in the Mellor Cemetery... Alice 1961 and Joe 1958

I believe Alice father is William Bradbury and her Mother Ruth Hyde also buried in Mellor Cemetery

The family seem to be connected to Tarden Farm

Any information on Tarden Farm and the Bradburys and Taylors from the area would be much appreciated...
