Saughland Farm is now vine producing land. The farm steading itself is greatly altered with new build surrounding it. Originally a row of 6 cottages, apart from slight alteration, the row remains largely unchanged from its original design retaining its roofline and is a good example of improvement era farm worker accommodation.
