Large, wide stopped-chamfered beams were removed from the barn and i corporated in Ty Fanner, the farmhouse c.1900 (information from Mr. Rowlands, the present owner).

Catslide addition to the rear with a square unglazed opening and a blocked ventilation slit; flanking boarded doors. The 3 later bays are open to the W with dividing plain rubble piers, though the lower S and E walls are filled in with breeze-blocks to half height; corrugated iron sheeting to upper S gable.


Plain open interior with collar truss roof of c.1800; bolted collars, pegged principals and rough overlapping purlins.
