Archaeology Notes

NJ51SW 83 53990 10669.

This late-19th-century farmstead, with 20th-century timber additions, has an L-shaped plan. It is of one and one-and-a-half storeys and includes a byre, a two-horse stable with original fittings, a henhouse with original boxes and chicken run, a barn and threshing barn with threshing machine in situ and the site of a water wheel to the rear (N), a turnip shed with sliding doors to the barn, a cart shed and a general shed. There is also a detached railway carriage to the E and a well to the N. The farmstead is built of roughly squared granite, partly harled, and has slate roofs.

A detached farmhouse of c.1900, with porch, lobby, kitchen, bedroom and room downstairs and two attic bedrooms, is situated to the N as is a former farmhouse, now a cottage, of c.1800 AD. This has a lobby, a kitchen without running water, a bedroom downstairs and one room in the attic.

When visited in 2000 the farmstead was in good condition.
