Late 18th, early 19th century barn and stable range, constructed of local rubble stone, corrugated metal roofs. The buildings were deemed to be at risk in the 1994 survey.
Site visits in 1997 and 1998. The back wall suffers from run-off from the field behind which is undercutting it. Some works, therefore, needed to stabilise it. Other details: Photo.
