Archaeology Notes

NJ51SW 90 54751 10125.

This late-19th-century farmstead has an L-shape plan and lies around a courtyard with a large feeding trough at its centre. There is a stable, a byre, a barn with threshing machine in situ and a gig house with two cart bays. Detached buildings include a sheep house and the two-storeyed farmhouse, which is situated immediately to the E. Remaining fixtures and fittings include the original ventilation openings and a hay rack. The farmstead is built of roughly squared granite rubble and has slate roofs. It was in good condition when visited in 2000.
