barn with opposing full height doorways to the threshing floor a little left (south)
of centre. A C19 granary projects at right angles to rear, and overlaps a little,
the left end. Other secondary outshots to rear.

hatches to left and were probably 2 to right but the end one has been enlarged to
another doorway. The roof is hipped to left and gable-ended to right with shaped
kneelers and coping. There is a narrow Beerstone ventilator in that end. The rear

original; it is 8 bays and carried on side-pegged jointed cruck trusses with cranked
collars and three sets of through purlins.
Despite its poor condition this is a fine and unusually large C16 barn.
