Peat shed, early C19th. Timber framed with boarded walls. Thatched roof, flanked door and glazed frame window on front elevation (south) and high level planked access door at rear. Inside the roof has mainly pole rafters and only one (later) collar. Present owner (1988) remembers when she was a child, the shed being filled with peat to the roof through the high level door. The peat was then removed as needed from the front door.
