The adjacent farmhouse was rebuilt in 1745 by William Watkins, but including earlier fabric. The adjacent cider house has a datestone of 1754. The barn may date from the same period, but the 2 roof trusses with mortise-and-tenon joints suggest the possibility of an earlier date. The tie beams of the 2 roof trusses above the threshing floor are sawn from the same tree. The barn has 5 bays with central opposed doors, but the lowest bay is lofted cowhouse/stable. The roof was formerly of stone slates, and a few remain on the rear eaves of the barn.
