Large barn with attached horse wheel house and threshing barn to north. Late C18/early C19. Vari-colour brick. Grey slate roofs. The long, tall barn with 2 hipped midstreys and lean-to granaries to south face. Lean-to to north-west face adjoining the full height horse wheel house, this with hipped roof, pyramidal roof to attached full height threshing barn, there is a parapet verge to main barn roof at junction with the eastern wall of the threshing barn and a lower level roof continues to eastern wall of main barn.

Door opening with timber lintel to outshot and full height doorway to north west face of main barn, further west a sunken panel with dentilled eaves cornice and central window. Some walls with rounded angles to prevent stock injuries. Similar panel to west wall. Internally the complex has a good king post roof, some of the main barn tie beams are scissor braced. A doorway in the partition wall of the threshing barn leads into the internally octagonal horse gin, part of the original driving shaft remains in this wall. Central first floor height double beams with central tie, this with driving shaft groove. Until recent years the original horse track was below these beams, but the floor is now of concrete as the building is used for dairy farming. Originally a loft floor to this room. The buildings were part of a larger complex, now demolished, and are believed to have been based on the farm complex at Holkham Hall, Norfolk. A very rare survival of a horse wheel house,barn complex in Essex.
