Small cow house which, as with other buildings on the farm, appears to be part of an early 20th century rebuilding programme (building H). It has a clay pantile roof. The 'thatch' beneath appears to be the remains of insulation rather than an earlier roof covering. Two thirds of the tiles are missing and the loft floor is in very poor condition.

Ordnance Survey, 2013, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV350786.
