Cympil, lost my bearing on this one, where was this building in relation to any existing structure?

This is Plessey Mill Farm, it can be seen from Plessey Woods. The actual address for it is Shotton Lane, Cramlington, so by rights, i should maybe make a Cramlington photo album!

I`m not sure if it`s always been called Plessey Mill Farm though, as this photo was only titled `Plessey Mill`.

Maybe someone can enlighten us further on this one.

This photo was posted on Facebook sixtownships site but with no info or the source of the photo. Had a quick Google search but only info on the farm returned and nothing to match the images of the buildings in the photo. The old ordnance survey maps show a Plessey Hall Farm and a Plessey Mill with the Plessey Mill as '(Dis)', that I would take as disused, on the  map published in 1954. Proves nothing but filled in half an hour of me time.

I think the layout of the buildings in each of the first 3 maps is well depicted in the photo. Maybe the farm co existed with the mill or grew out of the buildings remaining when the mill ceased its original function.
