Lodge Farm, Nazeing Common, Essex
Region: South East
Summary: At Lodge Farm, an historic building record of a Grade II listed early-18th century barn and later-19th century farm complex, was undertaken. This satisfied the requirements of a recording condition, attached to the consent, for their conversion to office use.
Historic farm buildings have been identified as a priority in the regional archaeological research framework. Where works involving adaptive reuse or conversion are acceptable, the Historic Environment Branch recommend the use of conditions, where appropriate, to ensure a record is made of the site before its agricultural function is lost.
This information is enhancing the current level of understanding of the history of farming in Essex.
