Full description

1840, Tithe Map (Cartographic). SDV339770.

Three buildings are indicated on the Tithe Map; the main an L-shaped building overlying the footprint of the extant farmhouse, but also extending to the south, from the south side. Also, a smaller building to the north of the farmhouse and a second substantial building to the south of the site.


Ordnance Survey, 1880-1899, First Edition Ordnance 25 inch map (Cartographic). SDV336179.

By the late 19th century historic map, part of the L-shaped building has gone; only the southern section appears to remain and a gap now exists in between this and the farmhouse to the north. This appears to have become a walled garden area.
The north and south buildings appear unchanged but there is the indication of a horse engine house added on the north-eastern side of the farmhouse structure.
