Barn. Mid-late C16. Timber framed, the walls and roof clad in corrugated
iron sheeting. 4 bays, a floored bay to the south now lost. Cart entrance in

All 3 open tie beams retain their heavy braces. King-post roof, of a rare
form clearly related to that in the rear wing of the adjacent farmhouse (Item

the collars is a row of side purlins, set against the outside of the principal
rafters. Roof altered to hipped form at north end.
