Barn and cow house. Probably late C16 with alterations and additions
dated 1863. Red brick with grey sandstone ashlar quoins and dressings;
plain tile roof. Barn and attached cow houses aligned approximately
east-west. One storey and loft. C19 dentil brick eaves cornice, and
dentil brick verge to C19 addition. South side: 4 loft openings, first
and third from right with chamfered reveals. Ground-floor chamfered
Tudor-arched stone doorway to right with partly blocked 2-light stone
chamfered-mullioned window to left; pair of boarded barn doors off-
centre to left with segmental-headed stable door to right and slatted
window to left. C19 addition to left with 2-light segmental-headed
windows flanking boarded door on each floor. Left-hand gable end with
datestone inscribed: "VRC/1863". One-storey block adjoining to left
with segmental-headed window to right and 2 segmental-headed
boarded doors to left. Rear of barn with tall vertical vents to left
and 4 tiers of diamond-pattern vents to right. The C16 parts of these

Corbet Castle (q.v.) which was substantially enlarged c.1579. Castle
Farmhouse is not included on this list.
