Hop rooms and storage buildings in two ranges with attached hop kilns and
animal shelter. Probably C18 and mid-C19 with late C19 hop kilns and animal
shelter. Range aligned north/south: (probably includes fragments of earlier

farmyard: left part has rubble ground storey and timber-framed upper floor
with brick infill panels in two rows to wall-plate, three square-shaped
openings to loft and three evenly spaced entrances; right part which is
advanced slightly with a higher roof line has four square openings to first
floor, five segmentally headed openings to ground floor with stone tallet
stairs rising to a mid-C19 ledged door to the left side of the right hand
first floor opening. Three late C19 square hop kilns with pyramidical slate
and felt roofs rising to louvred gabled ventilators are attached: a pair
to the north end of the range and a larger one to the west side alongside
the north side of which is a westerly projecting mid-C19 animal shelter
partly rubble, partly brick-filled timber-framing and weatherboarded with
a tiled king post roof which encloses the north-west side of the complex.
Interior: the C18 timber-framed part has six roofing bays mainly composed
of mid-C19 king post trusses; the north part has 12 roofing bays with
pegged mid-c19.king posts above curved principals with ashlar pieces.

coursed rubble walls to south, framing Stone House (qv), in three phases

steeply pitched roof; right part a front brick stack near the junction
with Stone House (qv); low entrance in west gable. Interior: mid-C19
