Outbuilding at Moor Leazes Farm, Lanchester
Outbuilding at Moor Leazes Farm, Lanchester
This picture shows something very rare in this area - a date on a farm building. There is a concrete insert between the doors on gable end of the building with the date of 1932 inscribed. I assume this was the building date. In several years of walking round this part of County Durham and viewing dozens of farms, this is only one of a very few date inscriptions I have found. I can only assume that as farms are very practical places, nobody bothered with anything as fancy as a date inscription.
