High House is one of the neighbours of the substantial Shield Ash and is just visible on the horizon from the farm. The dwelling is modest with one main room and a typical extension added to the rear of the property that contained a parlour, pantry and the outside (inside) latrine. To the side of the building are two stone barns and a third area that may have been covered as a hay store that was between the two out buildings. The house has suffered from substantial subsidence and is in a state of disrepair with some large cracking to external walls and the pantry all but completely fallen. All of the roof has completely collapsed with little remaining of the original structure. Small interesting pieces remain such as an internal cupboard and some nice woodwork around the entry porch that leads us into the main living room, it looks as though there was a small staircase leading to the single bedroom with windows only to the front aspect of the property. Another interesting feature is that the foundation stones appear to be river cobbles with dressed stone and infill sitting on top and they can be seen at various points around the base of the main wall structures.
