Rear slope covered in corrugated-iron. Stable range with (from left): WDWDWD. Boarded doors, windows with mostly altered 2-light glazing. Right-hand door bricked-up and window inserted. Flat stone voussoired heads and slate sills. Upper windows to second and fourth bays, rising to eaves. Gable end with stone steps to boarded loft door, timber lintel. Rear with two doorways towards W end, boarded door to left and window inserted to right door, stone voussoired heads. C20 window between. Barn range with tall door left of centre, one leaf of boarded door intact, cambered stone voussoired head. Loop to left and two to right. Roofless later rubble lean-to to right (extended later to N). Rear with corresponding tall door with timber lintel, blocked and smaller door inserted. Two loops to left and one to right. Rubble lean-to to right. Cowshed 8 bays long with (from left): WDWDWDWD to ground floor. Boarded doors, altered glazing. Stone voussoired heads. Window above right door with similar head. Rear with full-length outshut having some 11 openings, several altered.
