Remains of Wardhouse field system
Remains of Wardhouse field system
This picture was taken near the south-western corner of the ruins of the farm buildings: NS4660 : The remains of Wardhouse.

The farmstead was already a ruin by the 1860s; the line of stones shown in the present photograph was part of a field system associated with that farmstead, and it would originally have been out in the open. This strip of woodland (NS4660 : The edge of the woods), a later addition to the landscape, has prevented the field dyke from becoming overgrown with turf, and some of its stones remain visible. Compare parts of the same field system that lie outside the woods: NS4660 : Remains of Wardhouse field system and NS4660 : Remains of Wardhouse field system.

Beyond the fence at the far side of the woods is a golf course.
Wardhouse field system

By 1858, when this area was surveyed for the first-edition OS map, the farmstead of Wardhouse was already a ruin. However, the L-shaped ruins of the farm buildings can still be discerned, as can various parts of a field system associated with the farmstead.
