Keys to the Past

Wooley north range (Allendale)

The north range of Wooley Farm probably dates to the late 16th or early 17th century. It is part of a triangular arrangement of buildings around a yard that include Wooley bastle and Wooley Farmhouse that are regarded as probably the most important group of early buildings in Allendale. Documentary evidence can be traced back to 1608 when they commanded the highest rent in East Allendale. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
