Pockerley Farmhouse Beamish
NZ 222-545 County Durham England
Pockerley Farmhouse is a mid 15th century stone pele tower, of two storey and attics. Standing on a hill in the centre of the Beamish valley, this self-contained defensible house is on the east return of the late 18th century farmhouse. Under a largely original roof structure, the vaulted ground floor, supports a hall and a small chamber. The three-light mullion window in the hall, is a 20th century replacement but the stairs in the end wall, are lit by an original square headed two-light window. 5 miles north at French Hall is Ravensworth Castle and 6 miles south-east is Lumley Castle.
Pockerley Farmhouse is located in Beamish Museum, off the A693. 9 miles north of Durham, on the A1-A693.
