A large and well-detailed cartshed and granary with a particularly good front elevation. The majority of the original farm steading at West Foulden has been demolished/replaced - this cartshed, the former dairy and a brick-built farm chimney (no longer in use) being the only structures of note. Rutherfurd's notes a Mr Henry Hewit Craw as farmer at 'Foulden West Mains' in 1866.
