Houghton North Farmhouse


The farmhouse at North Farm in Houghton dates from 1802, although there has probably been a farm here from earlier times. Parts of the farm buildings are thought to have been built with stone from Hadrian's Wall. In the past, the farm was part of the Close House Estate.[1] In 1953, when the estate was broken up and sold, Houghton North Farm was bought by the Laws family. As well as being a working farm, there is also visitor accommodation available. The farmhouse is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
