Small rectangular dilapidated stone building at the eastern end of the shelter which is first depicted on the First Edition Ordnance Survey map. It contains a circular brick-walled vat with a fire box beneath it, the exact purpose of which is unclear. It may have served as a boiling house or mash house for the preparation of animal foodstuffs or could have served as a laundry although the distance from the main house would have been slightly inconvenient. Alternatively, it may have been a dairy.
