Howe Farm

Howe Farm

Howe Farm is an isolated farmstead located on the western slopes of the Hambleden valley. It was a private house when the only surviving barn was recorded in 1984, but earlier sales documents of 1882 and the 1845 Tithe Map show that it was a typically isolated, but substantial, Chiltern farmstead of 147 acres and with many outbuildings.  The recorded barn is of three bays, with a large porch, all now weatherboarded. Its horizontal timbers have grooves and holes for former wattle staves showing that the walls formerly consisted of wattle & daub panels.
