11/110 Farmhouse approximately
660 metres north-west of
Farmhouse. Mid C19. Brick with pantile roof, whitewashed throughout
(including roof). 2 rooms with continuous rear outshut. Single storey, 2
windows. South front has enclosed entrance porch/outhouse to right angle.
12-pane sliding sash and C20 casement in original opening to left. Hipped
roof, central ridge stack. Right return has 12-pane sliding sash, with
small 4-pane sliding sash to outshut. Rear has small 3-light and single-
light windows. Parts of Haxey Turbary or Carr (commons where peat turf was
formerly collected) were divided around the mid C19 into small plots
(usually one acre) and let for a low rent, creating a distinct settlement
pattern of intensively farmed smallholdings with very small cottages, few of
which survive in anything like their original form. A similar process
occurred with the turbaries in Epworth (qv), Belton and Crowle parishes.
One of the smallest and least altered examples of the turbary farmhouses
still remaining. Included for historical interest.
