Graduated green slate roof. Tall barn above cart sheds/hemmels. 4 + 1 + 4

square-plan piers between other bays, are set slightly forward of the archways
and have flush, tooled-and-margined quoins. Tall elliptical archway at centre,
with dropped keystone and blank wall above, leads through building into
farmyard. Flanking sections each have 4 elliptical archways into cart sheds/
hemmels; 2 bays at left now garages with C20 double doors. Moderately-pitched
hipped roof with strutted king-post trusses. 2-bay returns with central square-
plan piers. Identical rear: 4-bay sections flanking centre back onto yards

rare, impressive and unaltered example.
