Brook Cottage, at the entry to the hamlet, was built in about 1650. A row of cottages opposite Brook Cottage have completely disappeared, although the derelict remains of one can be seen, set back from the road amongst the trees. The field that now stands there has the name 'Stoney', which may indicate that there are the remains of a building therein.

Ordnance Survey, 2014, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV355681.

On the modern map, only the cottage remains; all of the smaller structures now gone.
