A photograph of this building was submitted by a visitor to the HER website in August 2008. It survives to eaves height in parts with an intact chimney stack at the western gable end. The building is depicted on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of 1875 but was unroofed by 1904 . It is thought this may have been the tacksman's house for the settlement. <1>-<3>
