Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

This is Baysgarth House.
The full origins of Baysgarth are unknown. It was possibly part of Bardney Abbey in the Middle Ages, but was privately owned by 1557. The current house mostly dates to 1730 1750, probably replacing an earlier timber framed structure.

The house is a grade II* listed building, built on an L-plan, with 2 storeys and an attic. It is built of red brick with a hipped pantiled roof.

The house was gifted to Barton Urban District Council in 1930 and since then has had a range of uses: station for an Air Raid Precaution (ARP) Officer, an ambulance service operational site, part of the Barton Grammar School, Council Offices from 1960- 1997, and from 1981 a museum.

I chose to show this museum because it is where some of the items found at the pub excavation are displayed. Gert enquired about the location of the exhibits.

This view is of the front of the house but my w/s show more of the L shape.

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
