Each side of the wagon entrance are long diagonal braces and horizontal boards either side of the threshing floor. A later floor has been inserted to the eastern bay. The roof structure has tiebeams, collar beams and original rafters. A few of the rafters are reused mediaeval rafters, halved for collars.

HISTORY: Part of a farm called "The Grove" south east of Robertsbridge which was an example of the trend in the C17 and C18 away from small-holdings and towards farms of an economic size. The original farmhouse which is called "The Grove" is no longer a farmhouse but is listed grade II.
A late C17 four bay timberframed threshing barn and attached C18 brick cartshed.
