The Grange/The Ruins/The Old Ruins, Main Street.

There is some uncertainty about the origin of the name, ‘The Old Ruins’ but it seems likely that it relates to the neighbouring Manor House; old photographs from the Wadkin Archive show a well-built working farm which implies that the name applies to the site rather than the building – further research needed.

In c.2018 The Grange was built on the site of The Old Ruins.
