A row of cottages stood at the north-west corner of the site, and their position is shown on the Tithe Map and large scale Ordnance Survey maps. The Tithe Apportionment refers to a house and a cottage. There are some sections of rubble stone and brick walling and a well, which is covered by an inspection cover and was not examined. There are also the remains of a hand pump and a concrete trough at the well head. There is a rounded feature projecting from the south wall next to the well, which has an internal brick lining, and may be an oven associated with a fireplace, although little if anything remains of the fireplace itself. The cottages were originally built of cob on stone footings, and could be of the same date as the 2 earliest farm buildings. They do not appear to have been occupied after about 1871, and were adapted and subsequently used for agricultural purposes. Other details: Figures 1-5, plan and photograph.
