Brick outshut has door at front and small wood-framed window to left side and rear, the latter retaining old wooden shutter. Interior of barn retains complete timber-frame, comprising: wall plate; full-height studs broken by long raking braces; unjowelled wall-poosts with arch braces to tie-beams; curved braces up to collars and also supporting principal rafters; threaded purlins; plank ridge; rafters. Wooden pegs and some iron bolts(fixing curved braces to principal rafters). Some renewed timbers. Small strap-hinged board door on right side of midstrey. The roof structure is similar to that found in the stable attached to the pub(qv). The barn served the former coaching house (qv) with which it forms a group. This is a good-quality C18 timber-framed barn which forms part of a former coaching-house complex.
