The Workshop

History

The little building at the edge of High House is a curious one, and an example of two halves. Firstly, and where the name originates, comes from the open fronted section in the photograph below being used as the farmsteads workshop.

Pictured below is the interior of the brick fronted part of the workshop, which had a very interesting floor, probably set with these grooves to keep harvested crops dry- very much like the granary.

The evolution of this building demonstrate well the social history of Purfleet and the country, as its construction coincides with the industrial revolution, ushering in a new era on the farm with tractors and other automation.
