History

Of limewashed stone rubble, Welsh slate roof to long range and stone tile roof to return; inward facing pitches are corrugated. Long range comprises a barn W with two rows of ventilation slits, one blocked to roadside, high opposing double doors with gabled porch roof to lane and cart shed wing E with 2 wide bays with timber lintels and hayloft above facing farmyard. Return range has hipped roof at angle surmounted by weathervane, roughly central double doorway acting as entrance to farmyard, pitching door in gable end.

Interior

Roadside range has stone threshing floor; trusses with tie beams, some struts, 3 rows of trenched purlins, partly renwewed. Return range has pegged collar and tie trusses with 3 rows of trenched purlins, interior divided vertically and horizontally, partly used as cowshed.
