Full Description

On the west boundary of a modern tree plantation are the remains of what is probably a small early modern farmstead, which was partially unroofed on the Ordnance Survey 1st edition map c.1977. A walkover survey in October 2007 noted that the site of the farmstead and its associated enclosure are obscured by trees, however a section of an associated enclosure north of the road is discernible. <1>
