Statement of Interest

Steading shown as U-plan on 1st OS map. 1703 lintel is thought to originate from earlier (or altered) farmhouse. According to Snoddy, ?Harestanes? "indicates a boundary marked by stones". Farmhouse of marginal interest owing to alterations but relationship to steading and potential have justified inclusion.
