Full description

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

This part of the farmyard wall appears to date to the mid-late 19th century. Not shown on the Tithe Map, the late 19th century historic map shows the farm was remodelled slightly around this time and this wall appears to be part of this phase.
