Threshing barn with attached cartshed and stable. Barn circa 1600, cartshed early Cl9 and stable dated 1847. Barn is timber framed, clad in weatherboarding, replaced in many places by corrugated iron, on brick plinth with hipped roof now covered in corrugated iron. Central cart entrance with double doors. INTERIOR: 5 bays. Wall frame has midrail and two curved windbraces to each bay, 5 remain on one side, 5 on the other and two at one end. The other end has lost the subsidiary framing. Jowled upright posts with curved windbraces and unusual roof construction with twin butt purlins and raking queen struts to the principal rafters. Attached to the north is an early C19 open fronted cartshed of brick in Sussex bond and some original weatherboarding remains on the north side of the barn. Attached to the north east side is a stable dated 1847 with the name "I Dann", partly of sandstone and partly stretcher bond brickwork, the interior retaining central stall partition and feeding troughs. Rape of Hastings Architectural Survey mentions only three other barns with the same roof construction as this barn.
