Farmstead and bastle north of Low Leam (Corsenside)

A group of enclosures on the slopes of Corsenside Common represent a medieval and post-medieval farmstead, with paddocks, gardens and fields of ridge and furrow. Within the farmstead are the remains of a bastle, though it has now been converted into a sheep fold. The remains of two houses also lie within the farmstead.
