before 1880HistoryTown RowOur Village
Spout Farm - This is a picturesque timbered house at Town Row some 350 years old. Before the Heathfield line was built in 1880, the lane from Townrow Green went through the farm lands, fording the stream in two places with a wooden footway for pedestrians to cross the stream. Spout Farm took its name from the spring above whose overflow passed through its stockyard, as it does still thro' the garden of the restored farmhouse. Many years ago the spring was an open pool by the lane side with a covered dipping place.
