Old Mead Farmhouse
TR 26 NW 1/293


Two cottages, the earlier of C16 date. Possibly 1520. Two storeys timber
framed refaced in red brick in the C18. Steeply-pitched hipped tiled roof.
Three windows, casements except for one sash with galzing bare intact. Modern
gabled porch. Modern addition behind. Called from 1582 until late this century
Poors Farm. The owner John Taylor in his will of 1581 left the dwelling and
the land about it "to relieve the poor". The old name derived from this and
the building remained in Trust ownership until 1938.
