Two plank doors and a square light, right; eaves raised. To its right a long 18th-19th century bank barn to half-hipped outer end and gabled right end; 8 shippon doors under 2 loading openings to wood lintels, and a continuous range of pigeon openings at eaves. Central barn door to left of centre at back, scissors roof. With lower ridge-line to the right a 2-part bank barn, probably 18th century with 19th century modifications. Stable with stalls and cobbled floor, then under swept-down roof, right, further stable with 2 doors to segmental brick heads, 2 lights, and a small inserted cusped green stone lancet, probably medieval. At back a mid storey to raking roof and plank doors. Interior in 10 bays A-frame 19th century roof and an early board floor.
