Visited 7th June 2000 by John Thorp. Early 19th century barn with late 19th century wagonway between stable and barn to east. Relatively large barn built down slope facing south into the yard.
West gable end with secondary stone raking buttresses and front wall propped by mid-late 20th century raking buttress of concrete blocks (east of centre). Large full height opposing double doorways to the threshing floor and loading hatch doorway in east end ( now sheltered in wagonway). Front ( south) door has solid timber jambs up to wall plate. Double 2 -flap doors, not quite full height. Each flap is a sturdy plank door with multiple ledges hung on wrought iron strap hinges with teardrop finials. Sockets each side (near wall top) indicate that there was originally a monopitch hood over the door. Adjoining wagonway originally open-fronted both ends. Now with 20th century sliding door to south end. It is contemporary with the stables.
Rubble stone laid to rough courses with sand, with tie beam truss roof under corrugated iron. In poor condition.
