Todburn Steel farmhouse includes a pair of 16th or 17th bastles. One is still used as a house. It seems probable that the western bastle was earlier, probably dating to the early 17th century. The eastern bastle is probably 20-30 years later in date. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
