Full Description

NG25NW 1.11 2485 6051.

This farmstead, which occupies the lip of a natural terrace, comprises two conjoined buildings, forming a skewed T-shape, and two enclosures, the more southerly of which is butted both against the other enclosure and one of the buildings. The two buildings are interconnected by an entrance in the middle of the SE side of the main building, leading into the NW end of the smaller building. There are two pens in the SW end and NE corner of the main building, which measures 12.9m from NE to SW by 4.1m transversely within rubble-faced walls 1.4m in thickness and 1m in height. The smaller building is only 4.6m in length by 3m in breadth.
