Probably C17 and so maybe contemporary with the farmhouse for which Jones and Smith gave a C16-C17 date.


Probably built as a combined byre and granary. Of limewashed rubble with corrugated roof, W gable also corrugated, a probable replacement for timber weatherboarding; boulder footings and battered. Ground floor of W gable end has 3 doorways, the centre a segmental arch and at sides 2 square heads with hoodmoulds, boarded doors; above a line of weathercoursing possibly for a former pentice. Roadside elevation has one ventilation slit, gabled loft opening with stone band beneath; stable door end left. Gable end facing mountain has a pitching door to loft.


Interior retains chamfered spine beams, byre stalls at upper end.
