around three sides of a stock yard with a detached single storey cattle shelter
and cartshed on the fourth side. Now has a C20 covered yard inserted but not
physically affecting the original buildings. Long bank barn on the south side
with four segmentally arched first floor barn doors on the outside wall and large
steam engine chimney stack rising from the centre of the outer wall, with square
plan stone rubble pedestal with moulded stone cornice and square red brick shaft
with projecting brick cap. All machinery taken out. Barn range has loading
doors and windows over doorway and windows below, and a segmentally arched wagon
entrance on west end to root house. The east range of stables and beef fattening
house has lofts above. The north range is shippen with lofts over and root house
in end with segmental arched wagon entrance. All segmentally arched openings
with plank doors and shutters. Detached range on fourth (west) side, single
storey with single span hipped roof. Open-fronted cattle shelter to yard with
