The Wooden Granary on Staddle Stones

A Wooden Granary.
White Place Farm itself did not have a wooden Granary, but it has a stone Granary, which is also a listed building on the farm today. Sutton Farm which was part of the White Place Farm, did have a building such as the one in the picture above and set on Staddle Stones. This building is sadly as with the 60 foot high dovecoté, which was also a listed building, has disappeared. I will be returning to discuss Sutton Farm, as it was in the 1930s with a map drawing for your reference. A very different scene today, compared with that era, when all the Astor farms were pristine model units.
