Archaeology Notes

NC94NW 17 91206 48962.

This farmstead was built in 1878. It is of U-shaped plan and encloses a S-facing covered yard. The N range is wide enough for two rows of cattle tyeings and has a staw loft above. There are also stables with loft, a mostly recent milking parlour in the W range and a cart shed under the granary in the E limb. The barn forms a N projection of the E range, with a lade and water-wheel site visible.

Visited by RCAHMS (GJD), April and July 1994; see NMRS MS 744/130/3.
