The name Longhouse is derived from the description of Westfield Farm by English Heritage as a typical example of a Central Passage Yorkshire Longhouse. Its origin dates back to the 17th century with additions in the 19th century. We have incorporated many pieces of period furniture from the 17th to the 20th century, recreating a farmhouse that has grown with the generations of farmers who have lived and toiled here. The History and Restoration folder in Longhouse gives more details.
