Site Status : Draft Local List

Site Description : Built circa 1870 Stopsley Village Farm was created by the Putteridge Estate and is a good example of a 19th century model farm dwelling and reflects the style of building typical of the Putteridge Estate. Farm buildings originally consisted of a south facing house with outbuildings extending on the east and west around a square farmyard enclosed to the north by a barn. The barn and parts of the other outbuildings were demolished when Bushmead estate was developed and the houses to the rear of the site in Temple Close are built in the location these buildings would have stood. Natural slate roof with two chimney stacks.
