Pair of attached barns converted into a house in 1994/5. C17 and C18, altered in late C20. Timber frame clad in weatherboard on brick plinths. Plain tile roofs. T-shaped plan, having taller 4-bay C18 barn parallel to road with 3-bay earlier barn forming cross-wing on left. Former 4-bay barn has half-hipped roof to one end and central double door with 6-light window to full height above, replacing cart entrance. Further late C20 casements and half-glazed door to front. Lower roofed cross-wing has late C20 casements and double doors to garden. Interior not inspected but recorded as having arch-braces framing with unjowled posts and butt purlin roof to the C18 barn and in the earlier range two early C17 bays with jowled posts and a clasped purlin roof with windbraces, the road-front bay being an addition (DBRG repart). At the time of this report (1976) there was a further 3-bay C18 addition to the north-east end of the earlier range. The Quaker, George Fox, is recorded as having preached in the barn in 1655 (plaque attached to Quaker burial ground walls (q.v.)). Domestic Buildings Research Group, Report No 1501.
