Moor View Farm on Manchester Road is undergoing repairs after being sold to a developer last week.
Jaguar Estates have purchased the site and are currently working on restoring the farmhouse. Safety fencing has gone up to enable them to get on with repairs.
The buildings are said to be in quite a poor state, with a hole in the roof and a holes in the floors. At the moment the developer has said that it is their intention to repair the buildings and put them back into use as a house.
There is considerable local interest in the site, particularly regarding the preservation of the farmhouse. Crosspool Forum has asked through Crookes ward Councillor Geoff Smith that it is kept informed of any future developments for the site. We’ll share news on this as and when we hear anything.
