October 1988. Field Observation.
The cart shed was examined on this visit and the listed building description confirmed.
The two upper mullioned windows to the north, now sealed inside the catslide, have chamfered-diamond mullions. As the building does indeed seem to be 18th century, it is salutary to note the late occurence of these.
