Traces of a former settlement can be seen in the lines of drainage ridges in the fields behind this house.

The village and its people were removed at some time in the first half of the 19th century so that the area could be used as grazing for sheep.

The buildings were part of the management of the flocks. They include housing for the farmer and shepherds, and an unusual building for sheep dipping, which was usually done in the open air.
