Barns, linhays and horse-engine house. Mid C19. Rubble walls,
part rendered, the horse-engine house weatherboarded to its
upper floor; dry slate roofs, the horse-engine house with

with round-ended horse-engine house built on the yard side; on
slope at right angles to this is principal carriage entrance
and barn all under 1 roof and then there is an L-plan range of
low linhays with fronts now infilled.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; each barn a 1-window range. Original
window to threshing barn and original planked threshing doors
