Statement of Interest

Called Linden Lea, 1995. According to the present owner the land was feued in 1811 and the feuing document indicates that the house must be built of stone with a slate roof. The house has undergone many alterations, possibly including a new roof with a slightly raised eaves level. The harshness of the picture windows would be reduced if mullions were re-introduced. The outbuilding to NW was used as a joiner?s workshop up until the 1950s and it must have been due to this that the bargeboarding is so ornate. The property is of particular interest due to the totality of the feu, as most of the strips of land have subsequently been subdivided and built upon. The feu extends to Back Feu to NW. It is for its local historical importance that the building and its curtilage has been listed. The building, sited beside the road, appears on Wood?s map (1823) but it is only by the 3rd edition OS map (1897) that the outbuilding appears.
