Tyne and Wear HER(7059): Kenton, West Kenton Farm - Details
Kenton, West Kenton Farm
Agriculture and Subsistence
Early-mid 19th century farm building complex comprising of a house and three barns. Other farm buildings once occupied the area east and north of the remaining complex but have been demolished. The remaining buildings were recorded by The Archaeological Practice in 2006 ahead of conversion into a residential development. With the exception of the house, which survives as a good example of a typical early Victorian type, the surviving buildings were noted as being of little architectural merit. A datestone of 1831 re-set in the north facing boundary wall of the complex is not thought to date the extant house (c.1840).
