A late but well-detailed farmhouse, built to replace an earlier structure to the W - itself noted in the OS Name Book as "...a commodious farm house 2 stores [sic] high..." Little of the original farm steading remains in place and the former farm cottages have been converted into a single property. Rutherfurd's notes a Mr Richard Lamb as farmer here in 1866.
