Barn; C18, loft added late C19; random rubble stone gables and
back wall; contemporary brick nogged timber-frame on stone plinth
to front; corrugated iron roof. Three-bay barn, contemporary
lean-to to rear. Facade to yard: timber-framed, long straight
braces to sill from main posts, 4-panel high with thin, probably
nailed rails. Ends of stone gables frame facade. Double boarded
doors in centre, left door divided horizontally: cambered timber
lintel over; door posts down to ground level. On left 2 panels
infill missing, both sides small, cross-shaped air vents to each
panel in upper half of wall. Timber-framed lean-to on right not
of special interest. Left return 2 pairs slit air vents to barn,
one in gable over, and in end of lean-to. Small brick building

Interior: originally timber sill with braces to wall posts each
side of threshing floor; inserted lofts. Rear wall of barn
timber-framed, as front, threshing floor extends across lean-to,
low doors in rear wall. Tie-beams and angle-strut trusses, 2
pairs butt purlins, square ridge. Room on left in lean-to entered
off threshing floor, right from outside, latter originally lofted:
both rooms probably for livestock, loft for hens. An interesting
example of late stage of timber-framing.
