Cresswell Home Farm is a set of planned farm buildings dating to around 1830. Included in the range of buildings are a smithy, a threshing barn, and an engine house with a tower incorporating a dovecote and chimney and pigeon openings on the third stage with nesting boxes inside. This combination of a dovecote and chimney is very unusual. The farm is now partly derelict. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
