Heathfield, Burnley aka The Castle

A little known Edgar Wood house lies on Manchester Road in Burnley. It is set back from the road in a walled garden so is not immediately visible.

Heathfield is a very beautiful flat-roofed Arts & Crafts house. It was built of local rubblestone which had long been abandoned when the house was constructed in 1908.

Today, the textured walls are covered in Virginia Creeper while mature lime trees characterise the garden. Edgar Wood surely would have approved of how the house has matured.
