By the early 20th century, a number of the buildings shown on the Tithe Map and the First Edition Ordnance Survey map have gone; three buildings at the front of the farm, close to the road, are no longer shown, as well as a large building set behind the manor house. The property 'Burnshall' has also been built set just behind the main farm buildings to the west.
