Bluestone courses discovered under soil
.

Found by developers when digging up what was previously farmland, an official archeological dig uncovered evidence of an old residence, possibly dating back to the mid 1850s. The cobbled path near the bottom of the photo was thought to be leading to the front door. The local history group had trouble finding out anything about this building, or the land it stood upon, so it continues to remain a mystery. Inset shows an aerial view of the remaining wall stubs. The site has since been levelled and is currently being built upon.
