History

Early C20 agricultural range erected in 1906 and built to replace an earlier range on the site. An earlier range is shown on the OS 6" map 1887-8.

Exterior

L-plan agricultural range, with a cartshed-granary and stable forming the foot of the 'L' and a hammel-cowhouse range forming the stem. Rubble walls with slate roof, ventilator ridge tiles and tiled gable copings. The openings have cambered brick arch heads with dripcourse. The hammel range has two paired doors, leading onto a stone walled hammel yard. To the R is a long cowhouse with door either end; the R unit leads into a feedroom at the angle. In the right hand range is a stable with central boarded split door and flanking windows. At the end of the range is a higher cartshed-granary with external stone stairs to the R gable end. Wide doorway to cartshed, with boarded split tackroom door to R. Two windows to the granary; slatted ventilator to lower part with 3 small square panes above. Similar windows to rear elevation. New window cut to tackroom rear.
