Summary of Importance

Middle Bodrane is, at its core, a late medieval former farmhouse which is of special architectural interest on account of the significant degree of survival its historic plan form, fabric, evidence of its construction and its architectural detailing. Although it has been extended and altered, this is not uncommon for domestic vernacular buildings which commonly have been the subject of change and adaptation over time to meet changing fashions and accommodation needs.
