dated 1863. Red brick with grey sandstone ashlar quoins and dressings;
plain tile roof. Barn and attached cow houses aligned approximately
east-west. One storey and loft. C19 dentil brick eaves cornice, and
dentil brick verge to C19 addition. South side: 4 loft openings, first
and third from right with chamfered reveals. Ground-floor chamfered
Tudor-arched stone doorway to right with partly blocked 2-light stone
chamfered-mullioned window to left; pair of boarded barn doors off-
centre to left with segmental-headed stable door to right and slatted
window to left. C19 addition to left with 2-light segmental-headed
