Barn, byre and cartshed adjoining north-west of Preston Farmhouse. Range of farmbuildings. Late 18th - early 19th century, probably earlier origins. Local stone and flint rubble; corrugated iron roof, corrugated asbestos roof over the byre, formerly thatch. The range of farmbuildings faces north-east and is built on the end of Preston Farmhouse and on the same axis. From left to right there is a byre, double barn and cartshed. The barn and cartshed were built under the same roof and built a little forward from the byre and the farmhouse. The byre is small and lower than the farmhouse to left and barn to right. It has a large doorway; the original has been enlarged in the 20th century. The barn has 2 sets of large opposing doorways. The cartshed is open front and back. Each is 2 bays divided by a circular stone rubble column. The roof of the main barn and cartshed is half-hipped to left and hipped to right. The roof is carried on a series of late 18th - early 19th century A-frame trusses. Date listed: 16th March 1988.
