Rectangular block to south-west of house with entrances to south-east side. Two storeys, (though probably reduced in height). Three loft openings to left of small pointed window with chamfered jambs and head, the central loft opening may formerly have been a doorway and has chamfered jambs.

To the rear are traces of further 2-light windows now with square heads and blocked. The building is buttressed to the south-east add south-west and retains part of a stack to the rear.
