- immediately north of Higher
2 ranges of outbuildings. Circa 1850, probably contemporary with the farmhouse. Red
sandstone with brick dressings (matching the rear elevation of the farmhouse); slate
roofs, gabled at ends.
Plan: 2 adjoining ranges, at right angles to one another and forming a yard to the
rear of the farmhouse. The north range is built into the slope of the land with loft
access at the rear. The south block (single-storey to the right) has had some
alterations but is still partly open-fronted and includes a chimney stack.
Exterior: The north block, with a loft, is 3 bays with external steps to the right in
the corner giving access to a loft door and second loft door into the left end of the
south block. Ground floor doorway to the north block at the left end, 1 4-light
ground floor window ; one 2 and one 3-light first floor windows. The south block, 2-
storey at the left end has one ground floor door to the right, one 2-light window and
2 first floor 2-light windows in addition to the loft doorway. The single storey
section is open fronted at the left end with iron posts supporting the roof (similar
to the lean-to on the rear of the house). The right end has been infilled with brick
with a doorway to the right.
