NZ1742 : Rowley farmhouse

taken 8 years ago, near to Quebec, County Durham, England

Rowley farmhouse
Rowley farmhouse
This fine old stone farmhouse is probably early or mid Victorian. The farm itself is older than that, there was a medieval village here. An interesting point is the inscribed stone between the upper windows. The initials E S on the lower line stand for Edward Smythe, a local land owner who put these plaques on all his tenant farms. I was kindly given this information by the present farmer.
