To the right is the former ox engine house, of lower elevation of 2 bays, with
cambered aches with impost blocks. Leading on from this is the right-hand wing of
similar height with 7 doors, 5 with cambered arches and 5 semicircular openings.
This wing originally comprized rooms for fodder, lodges for 10 fatting oxen,

lodges for 10 cows, calf pen and terminated in a slaughterhouse with adjoining
steaming house and cistern for hogmash, to the rear of this wing was a series of
pigsties and kennels for Spaniels and Pointers. The interior throughout has
scientific king posts which is an early use of this form in farm buildings. The
barn/granary has some reused domestic timbers. Good C19 cast iron and wood stall
