Full Description

Almost identical to MHG53769. This structure sits within a possible kale yard. To the SE, two fields extend along the terrace towards the main farmstead.

This structure and associated features appear to be a pre-clearance house, with associated outbuildings and enclosures, which were not recorded by Home or by anyone subsequently and are thus presumed to pre-date 1774. <1>
