Lower Natsworthy was rebuilt by the Victorians. There is a blocked up doorway in a wall leading down to the house and a dip in the field indicating where a building once stood. A building is marked on the Tithe Map here. The Tithe Map Apportionment lists Field Number 55 as 'Barn and Garden'. The building here has now disappeared, though it is possible to make out where it stood from a rectangular depression in the ground just over the wall from the drive, near an old doorway now blocked up. According to local information it was the site of the old second tenement at Lower Natsworthy. Field Number 59 listed as 'Barn and Garden'. There are more barns there now than in 1843. Some were built in the 19th century.
