Originally, an open-fronted range of L-shaped cattlesheds, built up on a terrace with the ground falling away to the rear (north). In the 20th century the front was rebuilt in brick and rendered. At this time it was divided into a holding shed and milking parlour, with a dairy in the crosswing. Rubble stone, brick/concrete block repairs to walls. The stone rubble rear wall is the only surviving part of the earlier building. Front wall is 20th century rendered brick. Asbestos sheets. Tie beam truss. Mid-20th century tie beam trusses forming roof with uneven pitch. The pitch is shallower to the front than to the rear. Timbers are of slight scantling and are bolted together.
