The remains of two post-medieval bastles stand at Peasmeadows. They were built next to each other and today the south wall of one is preserved in the present house and the other bastle stands in ruins. Some original bastle features have survived, including a byre doorway, small slit openings and a floor window with a projecting spout beneath it. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
