MEM23050 - Honeymead Farm (Building)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
The farm is shown on the 1st and 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey maps in much the same form. The farm buildings are arranged within an enclosure in a line between c. SS 7965 3921 and SS 7978 3916; a stream or leat and then a series of enclosures is depicted to their north. [1,2] The 1946-8 aerial photographs show a few additional buildings have been constructed within some of the enclosures of the site and it is shown to have been further developed on the modern MasterMap and aerial photograph data, although the enclosure boundaries appear to be in much the same position and some of the original buildings still appear to be extant (apparently including the farmhouse). [3-5] The farmstead was visited in December 1996. It is described as a large, loose conglomeration of 20th Century and late 19th Century houses and buildings. It suggests one long barn or stables of rubble might be of interest.  The farm was originally built for the Knight family.
