Linhay. Probably C18. Granite stone rubble; corrugated iron roof (originally thatch).
Plan and description: open-fronted 3-bay linhay facing east. The hayloft crossbeams rest at the front on granite posts. Timber posts rise from the top of the crossbeams and have curving heads which are lap-jointed onto the feet of the roof trusses. This is an example of Alcock's type S2 linhay. The roof is gable-ended and the trusses are A-frames with pegged lap-jointed collars. The outer bays are now blocked up with granite rubble below the tallet (hayloft).
