Modern brick infil to R, and a modern boarded stable door. Further entrance to L with plain boarded door. 2 C20 single-storey extensions to L, projecting S, with an adjacent, probably C18 single-storey rubble outbuilding to the SW.
Stepped-down to the L (E) and adjoining, a later C17 or C18 rubble cowshed with parapeted gable with crude kneelers to E. Corrugated iron roof. (Reduced) entrance to the L with large timber lintel and a later window opening to R, now bricked-up. Boarded-shuttered opening above.
