Full Description

The farmstead is shown on the Tithe Map for Martinhoe in an informal courtyard arrangement. The farmhouse is sited at SS 6785 4840, with a long thin range orientated northeast to southwest at SS 6784 4841 and an L shaped range at SS 6786 4842. These buildings are situated within plots 104 and 103; 104 is listed as a farm house and garden within a "tenement in Slattenslade", with 103 listed as "gardens barn" (or "Gardens Barn"). Both were owned by Sir Robert Throckmorton, Baronet, and occupied by William Latham. [1] By the time the 1st Edition Ordnance Survey map had been surveyed, the farmhouse had been reduced in size and the L shaped building had been demolished, with two new small outbuildings forming the northeastern corner of the farmyard. This is repeated on the 2nd Edition map but with the long range of buildings at SS 6784 4841 heavily reduced in size. [2,3] Since the 2nd Edition map was surveyed, the buildings north of the farmhouse have been demolished and a larger agricultural building constructed to its north. [4] The site was visited in January 1997. The house was said to have the appearance of a 17th Century building, but with much alteration. [5]
