Agriculture and Subsistence
Shown on the Fryer survey of 1820, the Holywell Tithe of 1840 and subsequent surveys. The first edition plan shows a gin-gang. Survives as a working farm. A barn was recorded by TWM in 2012 ahead of conversion. The late 18th-early 19th century barn was found to be externally largely unchanged. Internally no original fixtures or fittings survived. No further work was recommended following the recording.
