Gray's Farm marked. The map shows a large farmhouse with a garden on the south side and ranges of buildings around an irregular shaped yard around the north and east side of the farmhouse and extending to the south-east.
The farmstead is on the south side of the road and interestingly the parish boundary between Hemyock and Clayhidon which runs along the road deviates to go around a small orchard opposite, on the north side of the road.
