Hart Farm. Possible remains of Medieval Manor House.
1. Hart Farm. On site of Manor House
2. Hart, at one time the seat of Sir Lewis Pollard and now the dwelling of Robert Dillon.
3. Hart Farm. A farmstead built on the site of an ancient Manor House.
4. Hart farm is a modernised house, rectangular in plan, and incorporating much of the fabric of an older building, but no architectural features were observed to suggest its date of construction. At the east end of the house an outbuilding protrudes to north and contains a filled in mullioned window and a stone bearing the date 1670. The house may possibly be contemporary with this as the type of walling on the north side of the house is similar to that of the outbuilding.
