Riverside

Riverside from south-west, with Forge Sound beyond.

This 14th century hall house comprises two unequal bays; at the high end, the hall was separated from a parlour and chamber by an aisled truss. It is larger than Forge Sound and would have had outhouses for sheltering some animals and equipment.

It is larger than Forge Sound and may have had farm buildings attached; in the 19th and 20thcenturies Riverside housed a butcher’s shop and the animals slaughtered in the stone out-building.
