Old Lea Hall Farmhouse
16th century (probable)
A farmhouse developed from the domestic wing of a former medieval manor house of the De Hoghton family. It is basically timber-framed on a stone plinth, and was later encased in brick, and has a slate roof. The house is in two storeys with an attic, and the windows are sashes. There is an extension dating from the early 19th century.[3][4]
