Pigsties. A narrow building which backs onto the road and is now attached to the later, stable. It has two sections; the middle section has been used as a pigsty for two pigs. The south end was inaccessible but appears to have been last used as a field shelter. The rear wall of both sections backs onto a lane and is continuous. Rubble stone walls. Corrugated iron roof. Tie beam truss. 3-bays. Uncollared tie beam trusses. Door/s; timber window/s. Originally two doors to the front, one is now blocked, and has a 3-light window in the upper half. To the left (south) of the plank door is a tiny replacement window in a timber frame. Currently disused.
