North Farm House, Killingworth Village

  • Description

    "This fine house was built in 1725 and is Grade II Listed. The house was described in the 1992 edition of Nikolaus Pevsner's book, 'The Buildings of England Northumberland' as, "a typical modest farmhouse, in coursed squared sandstone on a plinth, with two storeys, a near-central door and three windows". The steep pantiled roof would have originally been thatched. The lintel above the door bears the date '1725 DP' with 'DP' being the initials of Deborah Potts a sister of Mehitabel Partis who inherited the first (original) Killingworth Hall and its associated lands in the early 18th century.
