Probably a C17-18 stone range originally, substantially rebuilt in brick in the C19. Shown on the Tithe map of 1839. The brick section may have been a 3-door cow-house, the L-hand window formerly a doorway. The range also included a threshing bay and sheds. A tall loft window was originally a loft door reached by stairs.

Detail includes segmental brick heads to openings and tiers of diamond breather panels. Boarded doors to centre and R, with a 2-light window between them and to left, mainly casements with horizontal glazing bars. Loft hatch to L end of brick section, adjacent to L window, which was originally a door. The stone bay has a tall wooden casement window with horizontal glazing bars under a gabled half-dormer. Ventilation slit to L. To the far L is a boarded door with latticed loft hatch immediately over.
