History

Probably C17 or C18 and perhaps a secondary dwelling alongside the slightly larger main house. It was later used as a cow house. A new farmhouse was built c1912, although the building may not have been used as a dwelling by that time.

Exterior

A 1½-storey former house of rubble stone and slate roof. It has a doorway offset L of centre with replaced door, flanked by small windows. A stack in the R gable end, and a corbelled stack in the L gable end, have both been cut down below the ridge. The rear has 2 inserted cow-house doorways with boarded doors.

Interior

The interior was converted to a cow house with concrete stalls. All original features have been removed and the walls plastered. The roof has replaced sawn trusses.
