Extensive linked group of outbuildings, dated on one part 1822 (the date also of the farmhouse) and on another `D. Allen 1854'. The 1837 Roch Tithe Map shows the two parallel E and W ranges and part of a NE range. The farm was then owned by Richard Bright, occupied by Thomas Walters.

From right, two doors with stone voussoirs, then one door with timber lintel, opening into walled yard, then two further walled yards each with originally two cambered headed openings with stone voussoirs, but one of right pair has gone for C20 full-height opening and other is blocked. Further left, a door with missing stone voussoirs. Left end, with grouted slate roof, has two doors with stone voussoirs. Parts of the rear of this W range have been removed to open into C20 buildings behind. In front wall near C20 opening is inset what appears to be an early Christian inscribed stone with ribbon cross.
