In and around smithy a variety of old equipment (cheese press, portable forge etc). Smith’s house next door. 17th century, timber-framed, once the ‘Beausale Tavern’.
3 The building is in a good state of repair. The brickwork and roof are intact and the ground around is overgrown and littered with junk.
