Site visited on 22nd June 1979. Hannaford old house used to belong to the Bolithos until they built the new house early this century. Probably a pair of cottages according to its present owner. The back part of the house is probably older than the front. The stables for the house were where Higher Hannaford Farm is today. There is an ornamental arch in the garden wall. Front half of house early Victorian from gabled roof. According to local information the house could date from the late 18th century. The front has been lengthened.
Cottages and gardens. The buildings that once comprised 'Middle' and 'Higher Hannaford' have been much changed since 1843. The two marked for field no 1975 have either been demolished or absorbed by the outskirts of Hannaford manor.
