A former owner of Malton Farm has created a very impressive website which explores both the history and the construction details of this important building.  We cannot do better than refer you to that website, via this link: http://www.maltonfarm.com/malton_introduction.htm 

It is listed as Grade II* in the Historic Buildings List, which can be seen here: http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/en-52341-malton-farmhouse-orwell-cambridgeshire

There is further information on the former village of Malton in the Victoria County History, here: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=66691&strquery=Malton+Farm.

On this present Orwell Past and Present website, there are numerous references to the farm and the whole area, and you are recommended to make a search on the word 'Malton' in the search box beside the main heading.  This will reveal memories of people who worked on the farm, sale particulars, maps, etc.

In addition, there is a description of the Parish of Malton through the ages here: www.orwellshistory.org.uk/page_id__272.aspx

The area round the river crossing is liable to flooding, and there is a photo of the waters covering the road, and creeping up the lawn towards the house.  See our photo gallery below.
