Planned farmbuildings. West range probably C18, altered c.184O when engine
house added. North range C18 altered early C19. West range roughly-coursed
stone with tooled-and-margined quoins, dressings and chimney stack; north
range rubble with roughly-shaped quoins and cut dressings. Welsh slate roofs.
Overall L-plan.

West range in 3 sections. Single-storey left part has through-passage at
left end, 4 boarded doors and one window. Taller centre has boarded double
doors under segmental arch and boarded door, with 3 slit vents above. 2-
storey barn at right end, partly behind north range, has boarded and stable
doors and 2 loft windows with slightly-projecting sills. Most openings have
chamfered alternating-block surrounds. Coped gables. North end of barn shows
boarded pitching door in tooled-and-margined chamfered surround, with 2 older
chamfered openings (one blocked) beneath. Rear elevation shows engine house
projecting from barn, with truncated stack on right return.

North range 2 storeys, 10 irregular bays. Three pairs of segmental arches,
those near left end, with chamfered surrounds, are early C19 insertions; 2
boarded doors; external stone stair to boarded loft door; slatted loft
windows set directly beneath eaves. Coped left gable. Boarded loft door and
similar loft windows at rear.
