Protected Status/Designation

Full Description

The site is shown as 'Chevin House' on a late 19th century OS map, but only the buildings at the southern end of the site are present. The stables at the northern end of the site are shown on an OS map at the end of the 19th century and an early 20th century OS map. (1, 2, 3) The west and north ranges of farm buildings surrounding the farm yard at Chevin House Farm are mid 19th century Grade II structures. They are an L-shaped range constructed from coursed stone with slate roofs and were formerly stables but are now used as cowsheds. The west range is of two storeys on the farmyard side and single storey from the higher rear drive. The north range is single storey with a large roof vent. (4) Chevin House Farm was identified at SK 3412 4640 during survey in 2008. The Strutts established model farms to feed the influx of workers into their mills and Chevin House farm was a Strutt establishment. The farm is shown on the 1843 enclosure map but not on the 1791 tithe map. The farmhouse and retaining walls are made of gritstone with evidence of extension upwards in the farm walls with different stone work visible. The original timbers in the roof are exposed internally. The barn retains evidence of its use as 1890s stables, the original stalls with red/brown tiles and cast-iron tethering posts in situ. (5)
