Wells Farm

Situated on the road from  Healing to Riby (Wells Road), Wells Farm is a late 18th - early 19th century farm.
English Heritage, quite rightly, lists it as a Grade II building. 
The two main towers are rather impressive; the first storey was used for grain storage, the second storey was used as a dovecote and the cellar was used for either food processing or livestock storage.
There is a central section between the two towers, constructed of 'thicker bricks' than the towers. The roof has caved in (this, like any other part of the building, is extremely unstable and must not be entered under any circumstances).
