Tyne and Wear HER(1583): Backworth, Prospect Hill Farm - Details
Backworth, Prospect Hill Farm
Agriculture and Subsistence
Probably dates from the 1790s at the latest. The development around the 18th century core appears to have taken place early in the 19th century and the farm as it stood c.1980 was virtually complete by the late 1850s. The house seems to be a refronted version of an older structure which was possibly contemporary with the early development of the farm. The farm was demolished in 1980s or 1990s.
