Statement of Interest

NOTES: The house was extensively renovated in the late 20th century however it does still retain some original features including the remnants of the SW skew. The pitch of the skew suggests that the roof was steeper than it is today indicating that the house could have been thatched. It is not likely that the date stone above the central door is original to the house, it is said to have come from another building and was placed above the door at the time of renovation.
