Field No. 435, Northway. Houses. Arable use (citing Tithe Map).
(8/8/1979) According to the present owner there has been a house at Northway since the 1300s, the present house dates from the 1600s. The house has been renovated very recently with the shippon being converted into a kitchen within the last year.
Two old cottages marked on the 1843 tithe map have disappeared. One shed with very peculiar stonework has been built since 1843. The roof has been redone and the exterior rendering has been chipped off to reveal the stonework.
