Westerhope, Stamfordham Road, Black Swine Farm
Agriculture and Subsistence
A Black Swine Farm existed here in 1765, but a farm is shown on First edition Ordnance Survey plan, which appears to include a gin gan. It was farmed by the Reay family in the 20th century. Most of the buildings were demolished in 1947 but the adjoining farmhouse remains and has been refurbished.
