- Summary: Farm steading, 18th century with later extensions
- Description: (1) In March 2004, Headland Archaeology Ltd undertook historic building recording at Goshen Farm Steading. The Level 2 Building Survey concerned the upstanding remains that were due to be redeveloped as housing. The steading comprises 15 buildings dating from the second half of the 18th to mid 20th century. The farm lies next to and is associated with Drummore House and estate.
The early phases of the steading date to the second half of the 18th century, and comprised four farm buildings forming a courtyard to the north with a fifth building to the south. This layout was later extended by the formation of a second courtyard to the south by the erection of three more buildings, probably during the first half of the 19th century. During the second half of the 19th century, the north courtyard was closed off at the west end, and later a large farm shed was built at this end.
