Billhole marked, comprising ranges of buildings around a square yard with the farmhouse standing separately to the north east at the northern end of a yard/garden and another small isolated building to the east. Comparison with the 1880s-1890s map shows the eastern end of the farmyard to have been demolished and a new building, making up the east side of a smaller yard. The farmhouse was also built during the period between the two maps.

The square yard appears largely extant.
