Outshut roof supported by curved principal rafter truss known as a 'Niddleton Truss'
probably derived from a cruck form. Queen strut trusses to remainder of
roof. The first floor of the outbuilding may have been a bothey as well as
a hay loft as it was lit by substantial windows from the beginning. The
addition of the outshut dairy to rear left and the lean-to cowhouse to far
right suggests that the number of cows and the scale of dairying were
expanding in the C18-C19.
