The dairyman’s house and farmhouse formed one block of building with a common roof, excellent dwellings both. A colonnaded lean-to on the north side of the dairy-house accommodated the great cheese press, and the vats connected with the cheese-making, a process carried out by ‘dairy chap’ and wife in spotless pinners.”Lilian Bond
