The farmstead was already a ruin before 1860; NS4660 : The remains of Wardhouse are located just inside the woods on the right.

The present photograph shows part of the field system associated with that farmstead. Not far ahead, a former field dyke can be seen as a low ridge running from right to left. From a corner at its left-hand end, a similar low ridge, made more conspicuous by the pinkish grass growing on top of it, can be discerned receding into the distance.

Behind the photographer's position there was a similar feature: NS4660 : Remains of Wardhouse field system.

By 1858, when this area was surveyed for the first-edition OS map, the farmstead of Wardhouse was already a ruin. However, the L-shaped ruins of the farm buildings can still be discerned, as can various parts of a field system associated with the farmstead.
