HISTORY The original stone cottage was built around 1790, probably as a farm workers dwelling. It was then two rooms up and down with an outhouse and scullery. The walls in this part of the house are about 2 feet thick. During the mid 19th century the estates were sold to a local land owner believed to be a wool merchant and the house was converted into a working farm and extended to the size it is now. In the 1920s the farm was sold to the County Council and was operated as a working farm and dairy by the tenant, a milk round was operated from the farm until the mid 1950s. The block built shed at the bottom of the garden are the remnants of the milking parlour. The land was sold by the Council to the tenant and it ceased to be a working farm in the tail end of 20th century. The house next door was built on the stable block and the playing field to the rear contained the hay barn. The Lister estate to the rear was built on some of the meadowland.
