Full Description

The farmstead, including buildings and associated enclosure boundaries, seems little altered from its depiction on the 1st and 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey maps. [1-3] The site was visited in December 1996. It was thought that the house dated to the 19th Century but had been much altered and is rendered. A long, low outbuilding was also believed to be of 19th Century date. [4] This farmstead was presumably built for the Knight family. It is possible that much of the original fabric of the buildings survives. [5]
