Sadly I know nothing of the history of this farm and discovered it purely by accident on the way to Potters. I didn't manage to find Potters, ironic considering I now know it's near this farm! But the farm's 1950s interiors were a dream come true for me and more than made up for not getting to Potters(this time!).
The farm consisted of a small 2 storey house (with a celler), long wooden living quarters and a series of out houses and sheds mostly for animals. It was in a truly sorry state and a fear of falling through the thread bare wooden floors limited how many rooms I managed to explore and didn't manage to get upstairs in the main buliding or spot any bedrooms in the living quarters.

It's called Steep Farm, formerly Lower Steep. I believe it was originally part of the Steep Park (Potters Manor) Estate and the long wooden buildings housed either Women's Land Army or seasonal hop pickers. Looks like they've cleared the trees recently too, I wonder what's planned?

Ah cool!
All the trees at the front have gone, behind the buildings hasn't been touched yet, stinging nettle heaven!

I lived there 1960 to 1971
