East-west range, with second range running north from east gable end, forming L-plan. East-west range: C16 or earlier. Chamfered stone plinth dropped down with broach stops at doorways, and continued along east gable end (visible from within second barn). No plinth to west end of south elevation. Central buttress on chamfered plinth to west gable end. Short section of roof at east end with higher ridge, abutting roof of second range. 3 later un-dressed ventilation slits to north elevation. Pointed-arched plain-chamfered upper window to gable end, and blocked plain-chamfered, probably pointed-arched opening towards base to south of buttress. Asymmetrical south elevation has three small plain-chamfered stone windows; one pointed-arched towards west end of plinth, and two 4-centred arched, one towards centre and one to east end. Three 4-centred arched stone doorways with broach stops; one, plain-chamfered, immediately east of west window, one, moulded and with hoodmould, to west of centre, and one, plain-chamfered, between central and east windows. Other, later, openings for doors, hatches and ventilation, two with probably re-used stone jambs. North-south range: later C16. South gable end flush with south face of first range. Higher, and more slightly chamfered stone plinth, to south gable end only. North end built out over stream with segmental arch over water. 2 small hollow- chamfered rectangular window openings to each gable end. 2 projecting stone porches to west and two to east, with hipped, gableted canopies jettied on brackets from pendant posts. Later doorway to south gable end. Interior: wall of east-west range becomes thinner above door-head level. Brick cross- wall in header bond, probably inserted, to each side of moulded south doorway. Floor, probably inserted, to east of moulded doorway. Roof of east- west range only partly inspected. Staggered butt purlins (C18?) in short bay- lengths to central section. C19 clasped-purlin roof to west end. 11-bay hammer-beam roof to north-south range. Bevelled arch braces to hammer-beams springing from pendant posts resting on dressed stone corbels.
