Coursers Farm. The farm incorporates the remains of the manor of Black Hide or Corsers which in the assigned 12th belonged to the nuns of Sopwell Priory.  By that time there were already quarries nearby and a tile kiln. Eventually it became part of the Tyttenhanger estates but the kiln was still extant in the 17th. The farm is now home to a number of businesses and an anaerobic digester is possibly planned.
