Statement of Interest

Winds'eye's U-plan leads it stand out from the numerous other 19th century farm buildings in the area where the typical pattern is for the steading to be a free standing adjacent building. The buildings also display many of the original features that do typify the farmbuilding stock of the region providing a good representative for the local farm vernacular.
