Range of agricultural buildings probably C18 and early C19. Refurbished and converted to dwellings in 2002. At this time new windows and doors were inserted into opernings, the concrete buttresses re-faced with stone, roofs were re-slated, in some cases replacing former corrugated sheets. Listing description of 1998 refers to site of manure pit in front of stables. Some of the machinery formerly used for processing animal feed although not in situ has been retained. Formerly the stable and cowshed had stalls, the latter accommodating 20 cows in 10 stalls.
