Mid to later C19 extensive group of farm buildings, these ranges apparently a cow-house, barn and cart-shed. The stables and cart-shed facing the road are listed separately. Not marked on 1845 Tithe Map for Prysg and Carfan township. In 1791 Nant-y-Dderwen was part of the Johnes of Hafod estate.

On the N side of the yard is a cow-shed with sloping roof-line, the lower pine-end to the road, and the upper against the pine-end of a much taller barn with level ridge. Along the E, upper, side of the yard is a cart-shed range attached at right angles to the barn, with roof sloping uphill away from barn. The cow-shed has loft window in lower pine end and, to yard, a door with timber lintel towards left end, and, towards right, a small loft light under eaves, a window, then a door and a window closely beyond. The door has a brick head. Rear has one door with brick head towards upper end.

Rear of barn has door with stone voussoirs to centre, small window just left, and stone lean-to to left end over large water-wheel. Just beyond are broad door with stone voussoirs and square loft door above. One window in upper pine-end.
