CLOATLEY ROAD (north side)
Barn, granary and cowshed to the south-east of Manor Farmhouse

Barn, granary and cowshed. Granary is probably C16, and converted from a dovecote; barn dated E/G/E1707 over north doors; cowshed to centre is probably late C18 or early C19. Coursed rubble to all elements, flush rusticated dressed stone quoins to barn; timber lintels over openings; stone slates to barn, double Roman tiles to south side of granary and cowshed, concrete tiles to north.

Four bay barn to left (east) with opposed and central double doors, saddle stones and bulls' eye openings to gable apexes; later lean-to to left of door. Interior has collar truss roof with butt purlins. Cowshed to centre with two openings to north, open to south and extending along the south faces of barn and granary as lean-to.

Four bay granary to right (west) with two doors, one window opening and loft opening to north side; steps to loft door in west gable end. Interior has probably C16 collar-truss roof with open notch-lap joints of early type to collars; doveholes exposed in loft.

Forms part of an exceptionally complete farmstead of early date, mostly built in 1706-7 for Giles Earle, son of Sir Thomas Earle who had bought the manor at this date. The store-house and animal-house of 1706 (qv) stands as a parallel range to the south.
