"There has been a substantial farmhouse on the site for several centuries, although the current farmhouse is believe to have been constructed around 1850" - mattdonut

There isn't much information available about this farm, or even what it farmed in its heyday, but it seems it was in use up until at least the '70s from the paperwork upstairs.
The farm can be seen on maps as early as 1881, simply labelled as 'The Hall', appearing in almost the exact same configuration as it is today.

Today, despite the site apparently being cleared around a year ago, the farmhouse still stands empty, and the yards overgrown once more. The site now seems to be owned by Pinehouse Ltd, who have applied for planning permission to redevelop the site. This includes the conversion of the house and big barn, with the rest being demo'd for new houses.

An old duplicator left upstairs in the barn (I shamefully had to google what it was)

Cheers :thumb

I'm a little annoyed I forgot to go into the other little barn, I saw somebody else's photos on another site and it looked all original. Won't be going back just for that though.

My dad spent a good part of his childhood in Packington, and knew this farm and its residents very well indeed (in particular, he was good friends with one of the daughters who has remained in the general area. Her children were good school friends of mine at the nearby Breedon on the Hill primary school in the 1970's, before we eventually moved to Shropshire.) I sent him a link to this page, and he was quite sad to see how decrepit the farm had become. Whilst it's not the "manor" of the village, it was one of the more important houses in Packington when my dad lived there in the late 40's/early 50's. All the same, it's fascinating to see this.

Awh that's a beautiful story, thank you for sharing. It's a shame it's just going to be knocked down for more housing.
Oh well, at least someone loved it once <3

visited myself a couple of weeks back, the whole building is secure but the gate on the fence was left slightly open, had a nice wander around but had to be carful because of neighbours etc, nothing left in the outhouses all are pretty much empty, the whole site is going to be redeveloped into houses which is a shame
