Full Description

The Tithe Map for Molland shows no buildings in the area of the current site. [1] A single structure, labelled "Tucker's Farm", is shown on the 1st and 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey maps with a pond slightly to its southwest. [2,3] The building is still apparently extant, with a small extension to its east. The pond no longer appears to be extant. [4] The site was seen from a distance in January 1997. The building was described as a very small, late 19th Century rubble building with brick segmental heads to its openings. A lower open-fronted shed had been attached to its end. [5]
