Cartshed, early C19.
MATERIALS: timber construction with side walls of red brick laid in Sussex bond and a clay tiled roof.
PLAN: the building is located in the middle of the former Cufaude farmstead and has a rectangular plan orientated west to east. It forms loose yards to the north and south, enclosed by other former agricultural buildings.
EXTERIOR: the north elevation of the building has three open-sided bays with timber posts with curved braces supported on low brick piers. The left bay is enclosed by a brick plinth with weather-boarding above. Return walls are built of brick and have weatherboarded gables; the east has a three-light casement window. The south elevation has been reinforced with a concrete block wall and retains weatherboarding to the exterior.
INTERIOR: internally the building materials of the walls are left exposed, hence are a mix of brick, block and weather-boarding. The roof is constructed with three king post trusses using machine-sawn timbers, with the gables consisting of multiple upright posts and diagonal struts.

Upper Cufaude Farmhouse has origins in the C16, with a major phase of extension and renovation in the early C19. The farmstead has a number of associated listed agricultural buildings dating from the C18 and C19.
The former agricultural building 10m west of the farmhouse dates from the early C19. It appears to have been built as a cartshed, though during the C20 is purported to have been used as stables, though no evidence of this use remains in the building fabric. In the late C20 extensive repair and renovation was undertaken, which included the replacement of timber posts and the addition of a masonry wall reinforcing the south elevation. The building is now (2014) in use as a garage.
The former cartshed south of Small Barn, 10m west of Upper Cufaude Farmhouse is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Historic interest: dating from the height of the Agricultural Revolution, the cartshed and the farmstead illustrate an important phase of the development of English agricultural practice;
* Legibility: although the building has undergone comprehensive renovation it retains a significant proportion of its historic fabric and remains in its probable original form;
* Group value: as part of an extensive C18-C19 farmstead, with the farmhouse and the other associated barns, cartsheds, outbuildings and the granary, all of which are listed at Grade II.
