Statement of Interest

Set to the N of Hutton Hall (now Castle) Barns Farmhouse and to the W of the farm cottages - see separate list entry for the latter. A large, essentially intact courtyard steading, prominently sited fronting the main road into Hutton. The 1862 OS map shows only the E range and mill (?) block in place with what is now the W courtyard then still a garden/field. Rutherfurd's notes a Mr William Fish as farmer here in 1866. Presumably once associated with the nearby Hutton Castle - see separate list entry
