Statement of Interest

Longfaugh was originally known as Longsaugh, but the f appeared due to printing techniques centuries ago. Saughland is the name of the next farm down, and the farms were thought to be previously connected. It is a 3-bay farmhouse that has had an early 2-storey, 2-bay addition added to it. The original entrance door remains, although a later porch covers it. Longfaugh has a smaller scale harled house adjoining it and a larger barn flanking. It remains a fairly good example of its type.
