Information from (S1).

April 1986. West side of building seen from adjoining property by E. Rose (NAU).
Listing description does not explain how 15th century date is arrived at, but the brick quoins of the west gable wall are of very early brick and this may be the reason. Possibly a similar origin to adjacent building (NHER 12103, see A. Carter's report). Rear outbuildings are of several builds of brick, with very long clay lump on brick plinth section at south end.
E. Rose (NAU) 4 April 1986.
