weathered plinth and finishing at plate level with dressed
chamfered course. Bay 1 has square opening, formerly with
stone mullion; Bay 2 has a small glazed vent slit; Bay 3 has
former arched doorway in chamfered surround, now blocked, but
with 2-pane light to arch, a further inserted 2-light at

The barn has been considerably altered from its medieval form;

that passing through Abbey Cottages (qv). It is thought that
this was the Abbey's Almonry barn.
