Tyne and Wear HER(16823): Whitburn, Rectors Farm Yard - Details
Whitburn, Rectors Farm Yard
Agriculture and Subsistence
Rector's Farm Yard shown on an 1817 plan of the village of Whitburn, although possibly medeival in date. The buildings within the farm yard, including the tithe barn (HER881) are all now demolished. The outline of the N, E and W of the yard still exists as standing walls. These walls are shown on early 19th century plans but are likely to be far older.
