Site of Tannery at Lower Tysoe

Description of this historic site

Documentary evidence suggests that this was the site of a tannery, where animal hides were turned to leather. The date of the tannery is unknown but it was located to the north west of Corner Farm, Lower Tysoe.

Notes about this historic site

1 From indentures found in a Lower Tysoe house with ornate 17th century doorway (house now rebuilt) it seems that the house was used as a tannery. A document of 1748 and another of 1823 describe a ‘whitlawer’, a ?leatherworker, at Lower Tysoe.
2 House dates from 1671.
