Long range on W side of farmyard, shown on 1839 Tithe map. It originally had a timber-framed front but this was replaced with brick c1920 and the interior converted to a dairy parlour, as part of attempts to improve farm hygiene at that time. The elevation includes 3 cast iron windows which are said to have come from Chester Station. The S range is also shown on the Tithe map but may be later.
