The Old Laundry building was probably constructed in the mid-late fifteenth century although it has substantial seventeenth, nineteenth and twentieth century alterations. The Old Laundry seems to have always been an ancillary stone-built structure which was certainly in use as a laundry by the mid-seventeenth century. It remained as a laundry until the mid-twentieth century when it was converted into a residence.
