White Heather Cottage (Bardon Mill)
The thickness of the walls at White Heather Cottage show that it must once have been a bastle, a fortified farmhouse. The main body of the house measures about 9m by 6.2m. No old features can be seen, and the building was much altered in the 18th century. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
