Smithy and cartshed to left (W); two narrow doors to right with crude projecting stone lintels, small 4-pane window to left of each door; wide cart door to extreme left, with slate lintel. Two small rectangular windows to 1st floor, with wood lintels. Rubble gable end chimney to rear (N) pitch. Stable with tackroom added to rear (N) of W end of smithy block; rubble walls and slate roof. Main elevation faces W, with lofted tackroom to right (N) and 3-bay stable to left (S).
