Agriculture and Subsistence
A two storey stone farmhouse, with slate roof. Remains of an earlier structure are incorporated in a wider and higher later version, with pigeon holes in the east gable. Adjoining is a single storey stone building with slate roof with ridge ventilators. This was probably a byre of 6 pairs of stalls, later converted into loose boxes. Parallel to this is a two storey building of rubble stone with ashlar quoins and jambs and a two stoey stone house with brick chimneys.
