History

It is not on any maps prior to the 19th century, so we can presume it would've been built shortly after the beginning of that century, possibly after the Enclosure Act of 1806. Thereafter, the farm cottage appears in each census from 1841 - 1901, but was not mentioned in the census of 1911 - the reason for this may be that at the end of October 1910, it was part of one of four lots listed for auction in a sale catalogue of Collins & Collins (PK2/2/33). It was described as follows: "Comprising Stock Yard with Barn, open Cattle Sheds, Cow Houses and Labourer's Cottage."

The explore was laid back and an accidental find while visiting the roc bunker near it. All photos are phone pics.
