A second threshing barn was built to the north of the house, possibly during the 17th century. It is aligned east to west and has been heavily altered with later doors and a flight of stone steps leading to a 19th century first floor granary. There is evidence of a horse engine on the north side. An 18th or 19th century shippon has been added to the east end with slate voussoired segmental arches.
