Wakebridge Farm House, off Leashaw, Crich, built in 1772.
The house, along with the rest of the farm buildings, were subject to a heritage impact assessment in 2018. It's interior and exterior were photographed and described in detail, in advance of a proposed redevelopment of the site. Although the date stone, and the predominant architectural significance of the building demonstrate that it dates to 1772, it does incorporate elements of an obviously earlier structure. (1)
