Linhay or piggery. Mid C19, the south end rebuilt after collapse in 1987. English bond red brick with slate roof.
This L-plan linhay or piggery has been adapted for fish tanks and a shop. The main range faces the coach house and stables (q.v.) to the east. It is 11 bays; a 2- tier arcade of round-headed arches, the upper stage serving the tallet or feed loft.
A block projects forward from the right end containing first a bay similar to the main range, then the shop has been made by adapting some other kind of agricultural building.
