Full Description

(1) Babbington Farmhouse is a Grade II structure of the mid 18th century, incorporating remains of an earlier structure. It is of two storeys and four bays constructed from coursed rubble sandstone with plain gables, quoins to the north-west end, intermediate and south-east gable ashlar stacks with moulded caps and a plain tiled roof. The principal elevation has evidence of localised rebuilding and the south-east gables has blocked door and window openings and the stubs of former walls. It may once have formed part of structures associated with the now demolished manor of the Babington family which formerly stood near the site. (2)
