Willimontswyke (Bardon Mill)
This is a fortified manor house or bastle with a ruined gatehouse, three stories high. The windows and chimneys date from the early 16th century. Joining the gate house is a series of farm buildings. On south-east corner of the main farmhouse is a tower. The earliest parts of the complex belong to the 14th century, but the surrounding walls and much of the farmhouse belong to the 16th century and the gatehouse belongs to the 17th century. This is a Scheduled Monument and a Grade I Listed Building protected by law.
