Probably C18 agricultural range, re-roofed in C20.
Lofted agricultural range of boulder construction; roof continues over aisle to rear giving asymmetrical profile - corrugated sheet roof but retaining stone copings. The principal elevation has a slightly advanced right hand bay that has a narrow door with loft opening above offset to L; main part has a doorway offset slightly to R with small window to its R and access to the loft via a doorway in the L gable.
The roof in the main part of the range retains roughly hewn chamfered collared trusses and the timber stalls and mangers remain.
Included as a good and well preserved agricultural range which forms a group with the adjacent farmhouse at Wern Gron.
