dressings; slate roof, some of it replaced by corrugated iron.
Plan and description: cow house facing west onto the farmyard and backing onto the

The stalls are entered through a series of doorways with low segmental heads made up
of granite ashlar voussoirs. There is a wide cart entrance a little right of centre
with 4 doorways to left of it and 3 to right. Large hayloft loading hatch to right
of cart entrance and 1 more towards each end. Most of the doorways contain C19
doors with ventilator grilles. Roof is gable-ended. The rear wall has 5 small
unglazed windows to the cow stalls and there is a ventilator slit to the hayloft
above each one.
Interior: has plain carpentry detail including a roof of A-frame trusses with
pegged and spiked lap-jointed collars.
