This was the North Lodge for the Blackadder Estate, which was sold during the 1920s. There was a projection to rear, which was pulled down during the later 20th century, in order that the present brick addition could be built. The stone was used to build the garage to SE. According to the current occupants (1996), the house was originally the estate manager's cottage. The date is written upon the sign and is therefore debatable although stylistically the date would be credible. The ornamental slating is typically of the estate improvements undertaken in the later 19th century on the Blackadder estate.
