Bennett's Old Hall (c. 1558), Ashtree Farm (early 17th century and perhaps 15th century in parts), The Farm (1616), The Old Red Lion (1631), Corner House (1637), Pear Tree Farm (c. 1697), White House Farm ( early 18th century), The Nag's Head (1733), Cherry Brow Farm (1739), and Smithy Cottage (18th century).
