Tyne and Wear HER(13330): Ryhope, The Village, Willow Farm - Details
Ryhope, The Village, Willow Farm
Agriculture and Subsistence
19th century farmstead still containing some of the original range of outbuildings, although in repair (may be older but no evidence for this). Planning permission has been granted to sympathetically restore and convert the former barns, alongside sensitively designed new build to create an attractive courtyard that reinforces the rustic character of the group, retains evidence of its original form and layout. A building recording was undertaken in 2015 by ASUD ahead of the proposed conversion.
