Statement of Interest

Essentially intact, this functionally-planed steading has retained some good details - the cartshed and granary being particularly good. Set to the NW of and still associated with Fishwick Mains Farmhouse - see separate list entry. Rutherfurd's notes a Mr William Hood as farmer here in 1866.
