March 2009. Building recording.
The barns at Hunworth Hall were subject to listed building consent for conversion and alterations. The buildings consist of a former farmhouse dated from the decorative brick work to around 1700. The house was converted into a granary and cartshed some time after the tithe map of 1839/40, which involved a complete rebuilding leaving only the gable-ends and the north east wall of the farmhouse. At approximately the same time as the conversion a stable was added to the north-west gable-end on a different alignment and the removal of other buildings abutting the farmhouse shown on the tithe map. The granary was converted into a dwelling in the 1960s.
