South-eastern range of buildings, originally depicted on the Walkhampton Tithe Map of 1839 as elements of West Leathertor. Only small sections remain now, parts of which have been buried by a forestry track cutting north-south through the site and debris tipped in during its construction. Purpose of these three buildings is unclear, although they may have served as housing for livestock or as storage. A small building attached to the southern side of the south-eastern building of the range is likely to have been a privy built around 1870.
