June 2015: A Heritage Impact Assessment was prepared in support of an application for planning permission and listed building consent. An interal and external examination of the building suggested that it was actually a former 2-bay open hall house of 15th century date which was then altered in the 17th century. The parlour and central hall bays of the late medieval house have been preservedas well as other features from the 15th century house. The front exterior of the cottage was also altered in the 19th century.
