This tall two-storey bank barn is dug into the slope of the hill, on the eastern side of the lower yard at Pridhamsleigh, the access on the ground floor being from the yard on its east side, with first-floor access at the back. There is a small datestone of 1860 high on the north gable wall. The late 19th century roof type and the uniform appearance of its walls and layout strongly suggest that this is the date of the whole building. Most of the ground floor was occupied by cattle stalls and at the southern end of the range was a separate room served by a "root chute" that communicated with the upper yard outside the barn. Root vegetables were delievered down the chute and chopped to feed the cattle in the adjacent pens. The upper floor had two threshing floors and was also used for hay and feed storage.
