HIGH STONYGILL FARM.

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE TOURCLICK HERE TO VIEW THE TOURAnother old farm sitting very high on the hillside, battered by the weather and now really in a very sorry state of repair. The building has seen many small extensions over the years with a mix of well finished stonework to some rather rough looking additions. To the rear a brick built pantry is complete with a sink and cold tap- presumably fed from a near by spring. In later years the building appears to have become more industrialised with many of the internal doorways blocked up and what appears to have been a living room converted to a byre. If you look carefully around what remains of the walls it is easy to imagine the original house which would have been a traditional layout for Teesdale. It is nice to see that the original latrine is still in a good state with the original toilet bench seat. The house does appear to have been used into fairly recent times with the south most byre having a smooth concrete feeding area and a water feed via a large tank in the upper room. Again, the building is in a really bad state and is sure to be in its twilight years before another large collapse of the front wall will spell the end to this once impressive farm high up on the hill.
