Hidden farmhouse with potential in Keighley

An application to Demolish a workshop and a “house” has been submitted this week to Bradford. It turns out that the said house is a well hidden historic farmhouse. It is in disrepair, but I would advise the applicant that more value can be added to this site by retaining the building and augmenting the site with vernacular new builds.

Worthville Farm near Dawson Road in Keighley is a hidden gem amongst 20th century suburban sprawl.

The plans suggest that the footprint of the old farm building would be within the gardens of the proposed 8 dwellings.

Why not keep the farm house and build around it?

If anyone has any other info regarding this building, please get in touch
