Plan: originally an open-fronted linhay facing north-east towards Middle Coombe
Farmhouse (q.v). Although much of the front has been blocked with stone rubble and
weather boarding it is still used as a cow byre with a tallet/hayloft over. The
original structure however is well-preserved.
Exterior: 7-bay linhay. The crossbeams carrying the tallet/hayloft are roughly
soffit-chamfered. At the front they rest on tapering stone rubble posts. Vertical
oak posts are set into the front ends of the beams through the narrow tallet and the
outer principals of the roof trusses a lap-jointed and pegged onto the posts. This
is Alcock's type S2 linhay. The roof is carried on A-frame trusses with pegged
dovetail-shaped lap-jointed collars. The roof is gable-ended. The linhay
originally extended another 6 bay further right (north-westwards) and most of the
stone rubble posts and some of the tallet-hayloft crossbeams still remain.

and its ancillary buildings it is also unusual for a C17 linhay to remain so well-
