A C17 barn, part rebuilt in stone in the late C19.
Barn mainly of light timber framing clad in corrugated-iron sheets, except for weatherboarding to the N gable end. The S end has been rebuilt in rubble stone. The E side, facing the entrance to the yard, has a wide full-height opening R of centre, 2 boarded doors and a lintelled door further L where the wall is rubble stone. In the L gable end is a loft doorway.
One complete cruck truss has survived. Two others have been sawn off at eaves level for conversion to roof trusses. A 4th cruck truss was probably at the S end where the wall has been rebuilt in stone.
Listed for its special interest as one of the few surviving cruck-framed sub-medieval barns in Radnorshire.
