Newton Hall
This is Newton Hall in Hyde- just down the road from here. It's a cruck- so-called from the A frames or crucks that support the weight of the roof. (You can see one of them on the side wall to the left.) It was built c. 1370, converted into a barn in the 18th century, saved from demolition in 1970 and then very carefully reconstructed by experimental archaeologists. 

Thanks to the magazine Current Archaeology for bringing it to my attention.
