Field Visit (18 July 2014)

NN 50316 01418 Listed building description reads ‘Possibly 18th century origins, with subsequent modifications, substantially rebuilt to late 19th century appearance in 1990s. Range of vernacular buildings, low, single storey, gabled and thatched with turf ridge, 3 contiguous units with 8 bays, now one single dwelling’.The level of the ground and roof rises to the east and the thatch is sculpted around the eaves to accomodate for the land topography, as well as for the window and door openings. The roof is continous across all eightbays and is netted over the skews forming a verge. The turf and heather ridge is also netted, whilst the rest of the thatch is left uncovered. The ridge is flourishing and includes a number of different types of grass and heather. The thatch appears to be a reed and is generally in a good condition, with only a few loose pieces of reed in places. The building has a single chimney stack located along the ridge at the west end.
