Farm building at south-west end of South Harton farmyard (formerly listed as barns with South Harton farmhouse).
Farm building set into the hillside at the top of the farmyard in the manner of a bank barn. 18th or 19th century. Granite rubble with hipped roof of corrugated iron. Two storeys.
Ground storey facing yard has wide centre doorway with segmental and having well cut voussoirs and raised keystone. Within the doorway is an open-fronted lobby having three doorways leading off it; two of these have plank doors with wrought iron hinges and the third (to left, leading to dairy) has thick wide planks alternating with recessed narrow ones. To left of outer arch is a two-light wood-mullioned window lighting the dairy. No windows in second storey, apart from a segmental-headed owl hole. Internally the whole building has an upper floor composed of heavy granite lintels, these being set at a higher level over the lobby.
The left-hand ground storey room, the dairy, has along the gable wall a granite trough set on granite posts; this is fed by spring water entering the building through a pipe at the upper end and empties out through the lower wall to an external granite trough, from which it runs down a drain to a reservoir under the north-east range of farm buildings.
Roof rebuilt in 20th century. The building is part of a very good farmyard layout, of which two other buildings and the manure pit are listed.
