Highlands Farmstead

Highlands Farm

Highlands Farmstead was overlooked during the Listing Process. It was located out of sight at the end of Highlands Lane, a typically substantial, historic Chiltern farmstead (first mentioned in 1401). It consisted of a timber-framed farmhouse of which one bay survived, with a tall brick & flint parlour wing extension. There was also a timber-framed barn of 3 bays with porch, probably of early to mid 18th date, and a brick and flint stable. More farm buildings existed as can be seen on the 1840 Tithe Map. The farmyard and all its buildings were demolished to make room for the suburban housing development of ‘Highlands Park’ in c. 2018. The site lies in the Chiltern AONB and part of it was designated a SAM (large number Palaeolithic flint finds in a former, braided river bed) and an SSSI.
