along road is former barn and carriageway. From right (north) end another barn and
linhay project at right angles. Rear wall of south range forms boundary to

courtyard. Immediately to left (south) is rubble blocking of barn door with
flanking short projecting midstrey walls. Further left is a pilaster buttress. To
right of carriageway is a full height door to the northern section of the barn. The
carriageway was apparently knocked through the barn. This block is mostly slate-
roofed and hipped each end. The other blocks are roofed with corrugated iron. The
northern range has a barn adjoining the west range has large double doors to

18-bay open-fronted linhay (Alcocks Type T1).
