'Crabbaland' farmstead shown on 19th century Tithe Map as a group of three small buildings around an irregular shaped yard. The Apportionment for 'Crabbaland' lists Field Number 489 as 'House Garden and Court'.

A rather complicated group of buildings and outhouses orientated east-west. The main building comprises two rooms with a possible dairy at the back. The rough nature of the area and the trees have helped to preserve this site and the remains are in fairly good order. There are a few fragments of slate.

Not visible on 1946 RAF aerial photos.
