Exterior

A large U-shaped symmetrical agricultural range dated 1762, consisting of a central barn with flanking stables. Rubble with freestone dressings under a medium-pitched slate roof with moulded eaves cornice. Shaped, moulded kneelers and coped gables to the flanking ranges. Large centrally-placed barn entrance to the central section with segmental arched head, rusticated voussoirs and central keystone. This is inscribed R W 1762. Boarded doors to the upper half. Flanking ventilation slits in sham medieval military style. These consist of groupings of a central lozenge flanked by large cross-loops with trefoil heads, round bases and crescent-shaped sides. Above, a horizontal dumb-bell-type sham gun-loop. The gabled wings have pointed-arched window openings to the ground floors with voussoirs as before (that to the R now lowered). Segmental-arched windows above. The inner face of the L (SW) wing has an entrance to the L, cambered, with voussoirs as described, and a further door and window to the R with an open oculus above. Recessed and boarded doors. The R (NE) wing has a door, window, door, door arrangement, the central window and door being modern. Brick stack to L. In the L wing survive contemporary wooden loose boxes.
