Farmstead included in survey. Visited on 16/08/2005.

Ordnance Survey, 2011, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV346129.

Part of the central farmstead building (possibly the farmhouse), may be the building indicated on the Tithe Map. Otehrwise, many of the other buildings appear to have been substantially altered. However, most of the buildings depicted are similar to those shown on the early 20th century map (approximately 1905) and show little change from this time.
