CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE TOURCLICK HERE TO VIEW THE TOURCollege farm is situated to the east of College Sike and adjoins the long footpath of College Edge of which runs directly along the Northern boundary of the property. Little is known about the history of the farm other than that it was occupied until just after 1841 where by a mother and one child was recorded as being present at the time.

The house consisted of a large kitchen with fairly high ceilings and one smaller downstairs room that housed a fireplace, to the back wall of the kitchen was a small extension which still has a 'cold stone' in the corner for keeping meat and dairy cool during the summer. A staircase leads up from the kitchen to two upper bedrooms, both of which are generous in size. 

Unfortunately the entire building is in a bad state of repair and is in a collapsing state with the byre now almost completely reduced to rubble, a large crack due to subsidence is very evident on the North East corner of the house of which in time may spell the end of the structure as we see it today.
