Summary

The main feature of Park Farm is the 45m long barn, which is dated to 1795. It is of brick and flint and has brick-edged doors and slit windows, with some herringbone brickwork. The original roof timbers are simple tie-beams, but the thatch was replaced by tiles 15 years abo. The farmhouse is of the same period, but has a massive wall inside the rear wing which may indicate some older building. The farm was apparently built soon after Witton Park in order to manage the lands.
