A range of farm buildings north of Underhaugh Farmhouse includes a series of bastles. The original bastle was probably built in the late 16th century. It was extended and rebuilt several times. The buildings became barns in the 19th century, when the new farmhouse was built. These are Listed Buildings protected by law.
