Archaeology Notes

NT67NW 36 61775 75558.

This large courtyard farmstead is fronted by four arched cart entrances with a granary above. The granary is approached by both a first-floor loading door and an internal staircase. The use of ribbed dressed stone suggests a date of post-1840 for the farmstead and a covered yard supported on cast-iron columns is a later insertion. One side of the yard is enclosed by a curved wall, possibly decorative in function. A henhouse in the corner of the yard has a pop-hole entrance in the wall. The site was visited in 2002.
