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. The property is being offerred for sale on the open market, but continues to deteriorate as the temporary weather protection fails.
