Farmbuildings. Early C19. A mixture of coursed and random dressed stone and

by a 2-storey range to form 3 sides of a square. The farmhouse (g.v.) completes
the square. Less uniform buildings in centre. Left range contains stables ending
in coachman's room with early C19 fireplace, 12-pane sash window and stone
chimney stack. Similar arrangement in byres to right. 2-storey cross range has
4 segmental arches forming shelter sheds and a granary above with slatted wooden
windows. In the middle, wallsforming yards, a turnip-chopping shed with
segmental arch, a store with shouldered ashlar door jambs and another byre with
2 segmental arches. Many good wooden stalls and fodder racks.
The byres to the right rest on a plinth of boulders, seem to be coarser in
stonework and may be earlier.
