Statement of Interest

A good example of a farm of the period, typical in its layout of the area, several other farms presenting U-plan arrangements to the road. The stalls in the east range serve now as overflow accommodation to livestock housed in the large modern barn to the rear, and also give access to it. The Statistical Accounts for 1840 show that Broomfield Farm, then 149 acres, was occupied by Mr Frame at ?30 p.a.
