2/89 Dairy Farmhouse
Former farmhouse, converted to 2 cottages in C19, now one house.

half rendered, and the southern half faced in mid C19 red brick.

Clasped purlin roofs throughout, the northern half of better quality.
The house is under restoration, and a number of reused timbers have
been introduced. reused timbers have
