Calf pens originally cattle shelter: Circa mid C19 but probably incorporating some
medieval walling. Stone rubble walls; the tall rear wall has a pronounced batter.
Gable ended slate roof.
Row of loose boxes set around 3 sides of a courtyard, they may originally have been
open-fronted for use as a cattle shelter. The battered rear wall appears much
earlier and was probably incorporated into the C19 building.
Single storey. Irregular front of 10 doorways with intermediate windows around 3
sides of a courtyard. At the rear the ground drops considerable and the tall
battered wall has 2 buttresses, one of which is simply constructed of rubble but the
other is of granite ashlar, similar to those of the infirmary and the tithe barn
(q.v.).
