INTERIORS: not seen 1999.
Empty and part ruinous 1999. An unusual farm steading, particularly notable for its curved N corner which, by following the curve in the road, is said to have allowed easier access to West Flemington Farmhouse - itself once a coaching inn (see separate list entry). The early OS map shows a circular-plan threshing mill (?) originally adjoined the outer elevation of the W range (now missing). The steading and farmhouse are now in separate ownership (1999).
