Exterior: North east side has catslide roof over outshuts, brick at
either end with brick midstrey to right of centre and with lower
weatherboarded timber frame outshut at centre. On south west side the
original aisle wall has been rebuilt in brick; cart entrances to left

weatherboarded. Interior: Main frame is largely intact except for
rebuilt aisle wall and missing original studding and rails on north
east wall and south east end. Tall jowled aisle-posts with curved
braces to aisle-plate and tie-beams. Queen-posts of cruck blade form
supporting principals and collars which clasp diagonally-set through
purlins; the principals diminished above the collars. Curved wind-
braces to the clasped purlins but none to the tenoned (butt) purlins
below; similar butt-purlins in aisle. Common rafter couples complete
and no ridge-piece. Some of the aisle ties may have been replaced.
