Building record MDR1081 - Hanson Grange, Newton Grange
Type and Period (4)
Hanson Grange, Newton Grange. Partially extant 17th century farmstead. The farmstead is formed of a regular courtyard of L-plan with additional detached elements to the main plan and three sides of the yard formed of agricultural buildings. The farmhouse is set away from the yard. The site is in an isolated location. Large modern sheds are located to the side of the site, suggesting it may remain in agricultural use. There has been a partial loss (less than 50%) of traditional buildings. (1) (2) (3) (4) There is little left today of medival granges, either in remains or documentary references, although the word 'grange' is common on maps of Derbyshire. Generally, although not exclusively, the name is attached to a farmhouse. The front of Hanson Grange is early 19th century but the south wall is a patchwork of earlier work including 16th to 17th century mullioned and transomed windows. In the basement are arch light windows which might indicate an earlier date which corresponds to the grange of Burton Abbey which previously existed on the site. (5,6) Hanson Grange was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, inferring that it was constructed c.996. It was a Grange of Burton Abbey which was dissolved in 1538. There are extensive earthworks [SMR 10617] to the north-west and south of the present farm. (7.8).
