C18 stable of rubble stone with larger quoins, and stone tile roof. To the yard is a doorway centrally-placed under a timber lintel (with replaced stable door). The S gable end is partly rebuilt and has a single opening with wooden mullions. Beneath the gable is a small trefoil-headed owl hole (the moulding probably having been salvaged from a medieval ecclesiastical building). In the W gable end is a loft doorway under a timber lintel and with a boarded door (reached by modern steps). Beneath the doorway is a ventilation slit.


Not inspected at time of survey (January 1998).
