You are at East Well House (13)
This was built as an 18th century farmhouse. Originally all of Sedgefield's farm houses were within the village but, after the enclosure of common land in 1636, most farms were moved out of town onto enclosed land. Next to the farm, but demolished in the mid 19th century, stood the original Sedgefield workhouse. This was heavily criticised by inspectors as 'a very unsanitary place'. It was closed and replaced by Ivy House (see way-point 23).
