The same four buildings are depicted in use on the early 20th century historic map as the earlier version.

Royal Air Force, 1946 - 1949, Royal Air Force Aerial Photographs (Aerial Photograph). SDV342938.

On the late 1940s aerial photograph, the large building to the north of the site can already been seen to be in ruins. The two structures on the western side, appear to both be in use and the main farmhouse/cottage structure to the south is largely obscured by tree cover.

Ordnance Survey, 2013, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV350786.

On the modern mapping only Greator cottage and a structure to the east of the farmstead remain. There is no sign of the fourth small structure mentioned on the First Edition map source details.
