NHER Number:12670
Type of record:Building
Name:Church Farmhouse


Church Farmhouse has a red brick façade, but probably originated as a 17th century timber-framed non-domestic building. It was converted and extended for domestic use in the late 17th century, and in the 20th century became a barn. An associated timber-framed barn also dates to the 17th century, although it may have been largely ruined in a storm in 1986.
