blocked slits, a rectangular hatch and an inserted segmental-headed window
with glazing bars. Middle tier: to left, a single slit, and an inserted
board door beneath a cambered brick arch and blocked opening, flanked by
single casements with glazing bars and brick sills beneath similar arches;
to right, a partly-blocked opening with a board hatch door to lower half,
flanked by single slits. 5 slits to upper tier, flanking the blocked
openings. Stepped eaves. Shaped stone kneeler to left gable; C20 rebuilt

Dentilled brick eaves cornice. Horse mill adjoining to left: single storey,

north and east, inserted dwarf wall to north-east side. Interior. Barn
contains flagstone threshing floor and 5-bay roof with tie beams to main
trusses, intermediate collared principal rafters and 2 tiers of staggered

chamfered central spindle shaft with tongue stops and raking struts to cross
beams with harness attachment arms, and an upper drive wheel with iron
teeth. The spindle is pivoted on an iron pin resting in a socket stone.
Probably the most complete set of horse mill machinery surviving in South

(qv) dated 1767. The ranges adjoining the barn and horse mill are not of
special interest.
