Tyne and Wear HER(1676): Ravensworth Grange - Details
Agriculture and Subsistence
Ravensworth Grange seems to have followed a typical 19th century development plan. By the time of the First edition Ordnance Survey plan, the buildings form an elongated "U" shape with a south-facing courtyard and a gin-gan attached to the north elevation of the central threshing barn. The present plan suggests that some alterations were made creating the also typical "E" shape with two courtyards, and that the gin-gan has disappeared.
