Low Hayrake farmhouse (Allendale)
Low Hayrake farmhouse has unusually thick walls and is probably a bastle. The walls are between 1m and 1.2m thick and have several bastle-like characteristics, such as a boulder plinth and long quoin stones at the corners. There are a number of small openings, that are now blocked, but these may not be original to the bastle.
