This picture, of the track that runs past Norcott Hill Farm, is taken from a very similar position to an old picture of the farm LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) (Original held by Dacorum Heritage Trust LinkExternal link ).

I simply walked along the track and my analysis of the site is as follows are:

The Gateway to Norcott Hall (SP9610 : The Gates to Norcott Hall, Northchurch). Norcott Hall (SP9610 : Norcott Hall, Northchurch) is a building which, at first sight appears to be an 18th century Georgian Mansion.
A house (SP9610 : The Farmhouse, Norcott Hill Farm, Northchurch) which might be the original farmhouse.

Entrance to former farmyard (SP9610 : Old Farm House and entrance to farm yard) - all outbuildings appear to be converted to residential.

Two linked farm buildings with backs to the track one with interesting wood and brickwork (SP9610 : Converted Farm Buildings, Norcott Hill Farm) the wood being just visible in the old photograph.

Entrance to farmyard which forms a rectangle with converted wooden barns.

Another farm barn (converted) with interesting brickwork.

Gateway showing rear of weather-boarded (and converted) farm buildings (SP9610 : Rear of Barns, Norcott Hill Farm).

Semi-detached chalet bungalows (SP9610 : Farmside and Parkfield, Norcott Hill Farm).

A mid-20th century(?) house and garden.

The track ends about 100 yards further on at a pair of field gates. (SP9610 : North End of the Track past Norcott Hill Farm).
