Apethorn Farmhouse, Apethorn Lane - Tameside

Cruck-framed farmhouse and shippon dating back to the C15, with external details from C17-C19. Part of a group of historic agricultural buildings. Following discussions, Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent were granted in March 2017 for renovation and conversion of the farmhouse, shippon and adjacent haybarn to two pairs of semi-detached properties. Once complete and occupied, the buildings will have a sustainable future.
