Bitumenized slurried slate roof over the lean-to. Plan: Rectangular plan barn with a loading door at the right hand gable end. The floor seems to have been inserted later to form a bank barn. the barn and granary above have access from a later rear doorway. On the ground floor a cowhouse or roothouse and probably a cartshed and a later lean-to, probably a cleaving shed on the front and at the left end. the barn adjoins the stables (qv) which is situated to the right. Exterior: Front: Doorway to the right with keeping hole recess in one jamb; cart-shed doorway to right of centre and external stone stairs to left under the canopy which is formed as a deep eaves by the main roof continuing down; under the stairs a dog shelter. Lean-to cleaving shed to the left of front and around the left end; it was originally an open- fronted cart shed. At the back a wide barn doorway to right of centre with chamfered frame, its lintel replaced and old plank doors. A shoot possibly to a root house at ground level on the right. Roof: 7-bay roof with 6 trusses; straight principal rafters with morticed ridge, dovetail lap jointed cranked collars, threaded diagonal ridge-piece and threaded purlins. The whole roof entirely intact except for the common rafters which have been replaced. The feet of the principals are dovetail lap-jointed into wall posts of uncertain length because they are concealed in the walls, but where the rear doorway has been widened the dovetail joint is exposed.
