Large threshing barn constructed of cob on a rubble stone plinth. The building is divided into three sections with a stable to the west and a cow byre to the east. The central, largest section comprises the threshing floor with stores to either side and two open lofts over the stable and byre respectively. The north threshing doors were raised and a horse engine attached in the 19th century. The horse engine house is now roofless but contains the remains of the horse engine.
