Pond Farm


The History of Pond Farm

Pond Farm is an Early Tudor L shaped framed former farmhouse consisting of North and West ranges with a cross wing. The long West side is continuously jettied.

Peculiarities of planning and the size of the 2 main ground floor rooms may imply a special purpose building*. Thought to be 16th Century in date. The roof is old but not original.

The house is believed to be a successor to an earlier house.

The house is enclosed on 3 sides by a moat (30 to 40ft wide and 4ft deep) with a counterscarp bank on the East side 40ft wide and 1 to 2 ft high.

The west side of the wet moat has been completely filled in.

*However, village folk-lore has it that the house was owned by  brothers who quarrelled and divided the house in two!
