Visited on 31st January 2016 by RichardL. Grid reference: SJ 6934 0165. Condition: Probably destroyed.
No sign on any of the existing buildings. GPS points to an area in the front garden of the farmhouse that may once have held a smaller outbuilding, although no trace remains. Nothing obvious on the farmhouse itself (possibly behind porch?) and nothing on the nearby roadside barn except more recent cutmark.
