  • Description

    "A range of farm buildings at Steel probably date back to the 16th century and may have been a defensive house a bit like a bastle. There are three phases of development in the building from the 16th through to the 18th centuries. Some features of the buildings are similar to those found in bastles. For example some of the walls are about one metre thick, small openings in the walls called slit vents. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law. When we first walked past this building about ten years ago it was almost derelict." Photo by Les Hull, 2010.
