NH 73334 44845 Mid 18th century cottage, listed in 1971 and described as being ‘largely reconstructed’. It was also listed as having a ‘heather thatched roof with centre wooden ridge stack’. The wooden ridge stack is now gone, and it would appear the heather thatch has also been removed, though closer access could not be gained on visiting. Further research into this building is required and the listing description updated accordingly.
