At west end and along road is former barn and carriageway. From north end another barn and linhay project at right angles. Rear wall of south range forms boundary to churchyard. The west range has a full height carriageway from the road to the farm courtyard. Immediately to south is rubble blocking of barn door with flanking short projecting midstorey walls. Further left is a pilaster buttress. To right of carriageway is a full height door to the northern section of the barn. The carriageway was apparently knocked through the barn.

The northern range has a barn adjoining the west range has large double doors to threshing floor at left end with flanking short projecting midstorey walls, a central high window, and at right end a wide doorway with loading hatch above.
