The farm is that known as Rushden Grange Farm, together with farmhouse, gardens, rick yard, stock yards, stables, and useful buildings, containing 124a. 1r. 25p., of which 66a. 0r. 4p. or thereabouts is pasture and the remainder arable land, situate on the main roads leading from Higham Ferrers and Rushden to Wellingborough, at the junction, in the occupation of Mr. Leonard Parsons, at the rental of £186 per annum. The greater part of the farm is freehold, and the remainder, containing 23a. 2r. 32p. or thereabouts, is copyhold of the manor of Rushden, which, being fine certain, is considered nearly equal in value to freehold.
