west sides of farmyard; west range a threshing barn of 4 bays and two 3-
and 4-bay barns (the eastern one probably a little later and with an inserted
loft) on north side. Framing: irregular square and rectangular panels
with long straight tension braces to threshing barn; the western barn on
the north range has 2 wide rectangular panels to eaves above a high brick
plinth and the eastern one single tall rectangular panels, also above a
