Full Description

A roofed building of unknown function, probably a house, is depicted on the 1st edition 25 inch Ordnance Survey map. <1>

Although it is still depicted on Ordnance Survey Mastermap at the time of writing, this building was demolished some time ago after the construction of a bungalow to the south. A watching brief during topsoil stripping for a new house found no trace of the foundations. <2>
