The late 19th century historic map shows an additional building has been added to the north of the farmhouse and the outshot is not shown. Additional buildings to the east may be part of the farm, but could alternatively be part of the neighbouring farm (MDV6413).

The modern mapping shows the dwelling marked as 'The Old Farm House'. Secondary buildings also shown to the north and east.
