segmental-headed chamfered doorway on the north side and 3
ventilation slits; 2 ventilation slits on the south wall, all
deeply-splayed. Segmental-headed chamfered loft loading door
in west end. The south doorway has evidence of infill with

short curved feet with tenons for pegging into a timber wall
plate; mortised collars and threaded purlins. Several
principal rafters survive; common rafters. The outbuilding has
4 pegged A-frame trusses, heavily repaired and augmented with
