Behind Lower Allerton Farmhouse is a large cob barn with a unique doorway with a shouldered head shaped in the cob. Its roof trusses have threaded purlins, morticed collars and turned-down feet sawn out on each principal. Possibly 16th century and certainly structurally earlier than the two 18th century buildings nearby.
