Statement of Interest

Noted in the OS Name Book as "...a modern built dwelling house...occupied by the proprietor, William Hood Esq." Harl removed 1998. An early farmhouse which, despite its imbalancing and non-traditional front addition, retains significant interest. The scrolled skewputts are of particular note as they indicate the original structure dates from before 1800 - confirmed by the dated stone to the right of the entrance, inscribed '1774'.
