Planned farmbuilding group, dated 1825. Central south front horizontally-
tooled stone of near-ashlar quality; other parts rubble with horizontally-
tooled quoins and dressings. Welsh slate roofs except for Scottish slates on

west range shows sash and casement windows with external iron bars, and
banded ridge stack.

Rear elevation: 3-bay rear wing of barn has lower mill to right, with boarded
door and double doors; hip-ended roof. 2-storey side parts have 2 boarded
doors and segmental arch in recess for original sliding door; atl 1st-floor

Many windows are boarded below a 6- or 8-pane upper part.
