Full Description

Castle Farm Farmhouse and Barn, North of The Square, Middleton and Smerrill, a 17th century building. The building was subjected to a photographic survey in 2017 in advance of proposed redevelopment: '...a 17th century farmstead which lies to the immediate north west of the former Fulwood Castle. The complex underwent development in the 18th century when it was extended to the east and the north in addition to being remodelled. In the later 18th century a lean-to structure was added in the northeast corner of the site as a pantry. The farm was originally a dairy farm for the housing of cattle, pigs and horses as indicated by sales catalogues. It is now vacant of its former use and an alternative function for some of the building will ensure that the complex remains maintained and in use.'
