Bentlegs: The map I saw was from 1892. On it, three buildings were shown to the right of the road, after the brook when travelling towards Bryn. The one closest to the road was not named, only the two that were together and a little further away from the road. On the same map, a reservoir is shown as being on the other side of the brook, opposite where Millingfords would have been later.

Another building, called Highfield House was shown further along where the road turns to the right and starts to go uphill. Anything known about this? I certainly dont remember it.

Of course, old maps can be unreliable.
