Threshing barn. Later used as a dairy. The centre section, purpose built as a threshing barn, of a long 19th century gable-ended range with a symmetrical front and two gabled loft doorways. This section is unlofted. The remains of an earlier, cob building, has been incorporated into the back wall of the range. A concrete block partition and a new door was inserted to the right of the front threshing door, to create a dairy. Chert, brick dressings; cob walls. Chert rubblestone with raised brick dressings, to accommodate plaster. Cob from an earlier building in rear wall. Slate roof. King post. 3-bays. An unshouldered kingpost roof, with notch in top of post for a ridgeboard. The tie beams stand on axial pads in the wall tops. Raking struts on tie beams. One set of back purlins on cleats. Door/s; opposing doors to threshing floor. Full-height, opposing threshing doors in solid, pegged frames. One single, ledge and brace door and one 2-flap door held on strap hinges, each side. A tall door to the right of the front threshing door has been inserted under a concrete lintel. It has narrow, tall double doors and a two-pane overlight. Currently an agricultural store.
