Archaeology Notes

NJ82NE 79 centred 89990 27330.

Extends onto map sheet NJ92NW.

This late-19th-century farmstead of one and one-and-a-half storeys has an H-shaped plan and includes a double covered cattle court. There is also a detached building of the same date. 20th-century additions include an open-ended corrugated-iron Dutch barn of 1965 and a late-20th-century corrugated-iron multi-purpose shed. Few of the original fittings remain in the farmstead, which is built of roughly squared granite and has slate and corrugated-iron roofs. The farmhouse dates to c.1860 and lies nearby to the SW. There is a consumption dyke in an adjacent field. The site was visited in 2000.
