History

Outward facing elevation has 3 small 6 pane hoppers at eaves level, windows with altered glazing under timber lintels to ground floor; farmyard facing elevation is narrower because barn takes up one bay, thus there is a central doorway, small 4 pane window to left, similar double to right and two windows similar to front at first floor.
