Northycote Farm

Geosite No 27

Northycote Farm, Wolverhampton

This is the best example of a Tudor period farmstead in the Black Country. Its fields are strewn with large numbers of glacial erratics which can be seen around the site and permit a picture of the ice sheet movements during the Pleistocene to be understood. The farmland itself and the surrounding country park offer an insight into farming practices and some rare breed farm livestock are present. There are many informal walks through the country park and opportunities to view or photograph a wide variety of wildlife, in their natural habitats. The farmhouse itself is not always open to the public, but throughout the year, it is opened to the public for tours and other events.
