Ushaw Home Farm, main block and wall attached, Esh - County Durham (UA)

Part of a planned farm, constructed 1851-2 to designs by Joseph Hansom. Of three storeys, the main range is built into the bankside so that the lower two floors have ground level access. Two attached side wings and a projecting central bay create an E-shaped plan. Many original internal features survive. There is general deterioration to most external elements, including missing or displaced verge stones to some gable ends, defective rainwater goods and cracking to masonry walls. Many areas of slipped or displaced roof slates are allowing the ingress of rainwater.
