higher eaves and hipped end, with a plank door and overlight and window with

east side has 4 tall round pillars in rough rubble, characteristic of the area,
with ground floor filled with stable doors and concrete block walls with case-
ments over. Upper level filled with corrugated iron sheets. North range, with
lean-to roof to outer boundary wall to lane, has 4 doors to segmental stone
heads, and a full-height opening in the corner at the right. Interiors not
