Mill End Farm

Mill End Farm

Mill End Farm retains all the features of a traditional 18th-century farmstead with a brick built, M-shaped brick farmhouse and adjacent large farmyard. This still contains all the farm buildings needed for mixed use such as cattle, horses, and cereal growing; i.e. two large barns, a cow house, calf shed,  shelter shed, stable, and granary. A former dairy use in the farmhouse has been identified. The stable has Inner Curved Principal trusses and a feeding gap to supply the feeding troughs below. The stable also has windows of iron frame & mullions with an internal horizontally sliding shutter. Barn II retains driving shafts, suspended from the tie-beams, to run former machinery. The outbuildings are mainly weatherboarded but there are also walls of brick & flint and chalk blocks; i.e. the calf shed, adding good insulation.
