Slate roofs, half-hipped north end and hipped over right hand (south) range.
Plan: Long range comprising a pair of cottages at left (north) end and an
integral wool store to right with a stable range at right angles at right hand
(south) end. The stables might be an addition after the fire reported in 1840.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Pair of cottages (Shepherds Purse and Bankside) to left
has a symmetrical 3-window front, centre first-floor window divided 2-light
casement with original small 16-pane sashes to left and right. Larger late C19

Wool store to right has doorway on left, central window and wide cart entrance

right hand (east) end of south range a flight of stone steps to a loft doorway.
Interior: not inspected. Historical Note: Said by owner to have been built by a
Mr Allanson from Yorkshire. it is shown on the 1846 tithe map. The West
Briton, (newspaper) of 25 September 1846, reports a fire here - "the premises
were totally destroyed, together with a large quantity of wool, whole of the
working tools and other valuable property to a large amount". Wool stores with
louvred lofts are very unusual in Cornwall.
