(Visited 29/8/1979) The house was rebuilt by the Victorians. The two barns at the front of the house still remain from 1843. The barns at the back have been built since 1843 but they may contain remnants of the old longhouse. They are built on a platform with a cobbled entrance at the back and a row of embedded stones along its lower east side.
