Carman House: dyke enclosing garden
Carman House: dyke enclosing garden
Of the house itself, little trace remains. The wall that enters the picture at the lower left corner, and which heads obliquely to the right before curving back to a point near the trees on the left, enclosed the garden belonging to the house. The house itself was to the south (left).

The long axis of the house was oriented E-W, and the almost semicircular garden was attached to the northern side of the eastern two-thirds of the building. The midden of the house was just beyond the far end (the western end) of the curving wall.

There used to be four trees in the area in the background; a storm brought one of them down sometime between early 1991 and early 2002. See NS3778 : Carman House: dyke enclosing garden for a view in the opposite direction from those trees.
Carman House

A farmstead with a surrounding field system. See Link (in a Geograph article) for more information. In the early twentieth century the building was called Carman House; only faint traces of it now remain. See Link for an enclosure, just to the north of the ruined buildings, where horses used to be sold. See Link for the more extensive field system associated with the farmstead. See LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view of the house's former site and its surroundings.
