Two ranges of farmbuilding west of Raddon Court. Circa mid 19th century and probably co-eval with Raddon Court. Local volcanic stone rubble, slate roofs. 2 sides of a very large courtyard farmyard to the west of the house : the south range has largely disappeared but the west and north ranges are intact. The west range consists of a threshing barn to the south, the roof carried over a cart entrance in the centre with a lofted range at the north. The north range is also lofted. The threshing barn has a pair of large double doors on the west side with stone cheeks. The lofted section of the west range has 8 ground floor openings with segmental stone arches and 2 loft loading doors. The north range has 10 ground floor openings with segmental stone arches and 7 first floor openings, the 3 right hand openings glazed. Included for group value with Raddon Court. Date listed: 28th August 1987.
