MATERIALS: The rebuilt C19 front wall is constructed of local limestone rubble. The rear wall has a stone rubble lower section of wall and cob above. It has a half hipped slate roof.

To the left are three shippon doorways with segmented stone arches and two ventilation slits above. At the rear the barn doorway has a shouldered head which may be C16. Roof lights have been inserted.

INTERIOR: The roof has two C17 trusses, the principal rafters have short cranked feet and another with straight feet: threaded purlins and cranked collards. The other trusses are C19. SOURCES: N. Pevsner, The Buildings of England: Devon (2004) 319
