Barn and cowhouse, now workshops. Later C17 barn, early C17 cowhouse.
Timber frames on red brick sills (renewed) dark weatherboarded with
steep old red tile roofs. A tall 5-bay barn with continuous added
side-aisles orientated E-W with projecting gabled porches to N and S and

unjowled posts, mid-height rails tenoned in-line, long straight braces
to cambered tie-beams, inclined queen-post trusses with clasped purlins
and diminished principals. Face-halved bladed scarf joint in wallplate
