Linhay adjoining north-east of - Stoneacre Farmhouse.

Linhay and cartshed. Late 18th century - early 19th century. Local stone and flint rubble; corrugated iron roof, formerly thatch. The linhay and cartshed face north. At the right end a wider bay without a tallet/hayloft is used as a cartshed and this section backs onto the former kitchen rear block of Stoneacre Farmhouse (q.v). This wall is extended further left (east) as the back wall of a 4-bay linhay. It is Alcock's linhay Type T1 in which the tallet/hayloft crossbeam are tusk-tenoned into full height timber posts which stand on stone pads and carry the front principals of A-frame roof trusses. It was originally open-fronted but now the front of the stalls is weather-boarded. The roof is hipped each end.
