An early 19th century farmstead with one single range, comprising barn, stable and cattleshed, with a cartshed beyond. The remains of a lime ash floor in the barn are an interesting survival. Single range. A single range, comprising the stable, barn, cattleshed and a lean-to pigsty, is the only remaining traditional building with the exception of a cart shed, positioned to the rear of the range. The Tithe map and the 1889 Ordnance Survey map shows that there was formerly an L-shaped building attached to the east of the house, but this has been demolished. Modern farmyard surface.
