Barn and stable. C16 with C17 and C18 alterations. Cob on rubble footings; corrugated iron roof. Central doorway flanked by short projecting midstrey walls. It still contains the original C16 oak shoulder-headed doorframe. Barn is open from the ground to a 5 bay roof of C17 A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars. Cob crosswall between barn and stable has been removed. The tallet is carried on 2 crossbeams of massive scantling which are neatly finished with soffit chamfers and pyramid stops. The roof appears to have been rebuilt in the C18 reusing old timbers and in places is very crudely cobbled together. It is 4 bays and includes a side-pegged jointed cruck truss.
