This is the most recent property to be constructed in Hampsthwaite and stands on land which in 1919 formed part of agricultural land sold that year to Frederick McCulloch Jowitt of Hollins Hall. Mr Jowitt was a Wool merchant and Top maker and a substantial landowner, living in what was until recent years the most notable residence in Hampsthwaite. The land he acquired appears to have been farmed in conjunction with his property at nearby Hollins Farm. Mr Jowitt died in 1921 and his estate passed to his widow Helen Dorothea who held it until her own demise in 1952. On the 18th May 1956 her executors sold Hollins Farm to George Ripley Pinkney who was in fact already in possession as its tenant farmer. The purchase price for the farmhouse with over 61 acres of land and further land at Killinghall was £3000!

In recent years the site has been occupied as a builder’s storage yard
