Agricultural buildings, original purpose unclear. Late C17, undergoing restoration at time of survey (December 1984).
Red brick, mixed bond, moulded plinth, double Roman tiled roof, coped verges, brick stack south gable end. Plan: 3-cell
without evidence of cross passage partition, kitchen at south end, small central room, large north end room, linked to
south-east corner of Haydon House (qv) by brick wall. West front facing Haydon House: 2 storeys, tiny unglazed long
rectangular lights between eaves and dog-tooth moulded string, brick pilasters below set on plain string forming 9
recessed panels; second, fourth, sixth and eighth panels with semi-circular lintels and keystones to louvred openings,
ground floor end 4 bays empty, asymmetrical placed in fifth panel pair of semi-circular headed doorways, keystones,
ovolomoulded surrounds and original doors, originally similar arrangement in seventh bay to right of small vent but
left hand doorway to stair heightened, 3-light casement end bay right. South gable end, dog-tooth moulded strings below
apex and below 2 square headed window openings, ground floor unlit, moulded plinth. East front, loft opening, plain
string and square headed surrounds and original doors, door to north end root very large. Brick wall with butt joint

square headed doorway. Interior: partially seen. Chamfered beams with scroll stops, original stair, step and runout
stops to chamfered lintel of fireplace with bread oven left and copper right; unusual roof - queen post trusses with
mixed, nailed joints, set unaccountably between ceiling beams bearing wallplates. Remains of drain in large north room
indicates stable with formerly cider house centre and wash and bake house south end. Whether these were the original
functions fo the building is not clear. A rare early example of high quality brick building in Somerset, retaining the
majority of original features. (VAG Report, unpublished SRO, March 1982).
