Grid Ref : SS8528033980
Summary : Westwater Linhay and platforms north of West Water. The walls of the building survive mosty at ground level apart from the northern gable. There are earthworks to the west of the building. It is thought that this area might have been an out-farm.
More information : Centred at SS 85283398 on a natural platform to the north of West Water is an area of earthworks to the west of Westwater Linhay.

The walls of the Linhay building survive mostly at ground level except for the northern gable which preserved in the field bank. This decay has been recent as the Linhay's roof was lost within the last couple of years (1). The earthworks to the west create a large platformed area, 40m long, aobve the track with a division half way along its length. The platform is cut by a later field bank.

The site's relationship to the surrounding farms suggests that it might have been an out-farm. (1,2)
