This contemporary map of the farm shows that it is on the side of the hill and may well be subject to wind blowing down the valley from the north

In the 1827 map below the farm is marked WINGATE and appears to be on the hill rather than in the gap
Someone with local knowledge may be able to tell us exactly how windy it is.
