NZ1257 : Peartree farm, Chopwell

taken 5 years ago, near to Blackhall Mill, Gateshead, Great Britain

Peartree farm, Chopwell
Peartree farm, Chopwell
One of the farms which predate the present village of Chopwell. Until the end of the C19, Chopwell was a purely rural agricultural settlement. After this time, the colliery was sunk and housing started to be built for the mine workers. This farm was already present on the 1862 First Series Ordnance Survey map. The farmhouse shown here is obviously not from that time, but a C20 rebuild.
