Possibly C17-18 originally as the building retains some timber-framing. It was remodelled in the late C19 with renewed openings, when it included a lofted cart-bay to the W end, and probably a barn towards the centre. The loft above the cart-bay was probably a granary, and a slate tablet over its doorway to the W end reads 'Sir WWW Bart 1890', referring to Sir Watkin Williams Wynne, a big landowner in the area.
A long lofted range with gable end bordering the road, constructed of shaley rubble to the S side and W gable end, and weather-boarding to the N side above a high stone plinth, all under an old state roof. Some of the weather-boarding to the N side is in a poor state, revealing timber-framing beneath. To the R of the weather-boarding is a cart-bay, with small window above; to the L, the elevation is obscured by a farm building of c2000. The W gable end has external stone stairs leading to a loft doorway, which has a segmental brick head with keystone and hoodmould, the door itself a chipboard replacement. Above is a square slate tablet inscribed 'Sir WWW bart. 1890' within a border. The S side has 2 doorways, both with segmental brick heads, a centre doorway (with chipboard door), probably the rear winnowing doorway of the barn, and split doors to R. Former loft hatch, infilled with stone, towards L.
