History

Plaque attached to rear wall of house has date 1649 though RCAHM plan is c 1760; it shows a screen dividing what is now a 2-fireplace room with stairs adjacent to main central fireplace. Garden facing porch apparently added late C20, as was interior panelling which reputedly came from a church. Chimneys appear to be C19 and possibly associated with a raised roof. When listed in 1977, plaque was apparently not visible. Formerly known as St Julian's Farm. Appears as L-shaped on Tithe Map of 1846 under name of Farm Shillian.

Rough battered plinth to left. Lower rear parallel gabled 2-storey cross wings with similar fenestration and rear doorway with bracketed hood.
