The Bromsgrove, Droitwich and Redditch Messenger – Saturday 24th June 1882

Property Sale – “Tanhouse Farm” – Not Sold


From the Archaealogical Report into the proposed Studley Bypass September 1994:

Both Tanhouse Farm (HW 10240) and Green Lane Farm (Hooke 1980, 76) contain 17th century buildings. The settlement therefore dates at least to the post medieval period and may have first grown up in the late medieval period.
