Little Wood / Lilly Hoo Farm

The above information and pictures come from a report prepared in 2004 prior to conversion of the farm to a private dwelling.
The report states that while one building is clearly dated 1862, there is some, if slight, evidence, that 1862 represents the date of one major, and perhaps both principal buildings only, and that some materials, if not foundations, have been reused.
In 1862 the farm was owned by Edward Watts.

Plan drawn in 2004.
The area F contained two houses which formed the north side of a padock in front of the houses. The houses were one room thick, of two stories with a thatch roof. They were abandoned in the 1960s or early 1970s and demolished. Only the north wall remained in 2004.
