Corrugated iron roofs with weather boarded gable ends (probably scantle slate originally with hips). Rectangular single-cell barn with opposing doorways at south west end side on slightly higher ground, and polygonal whim house, with open sides and solid end, attached to south east side on right. Single storey. Whim house has open sides with 2 granite posts at each side. Interior mostly original roof structures and complete, mostly wooden, threshing machinery to whim house and in barn. The whim is of the overhead shaft system and has central round post, round wooden cog wheel braced to post, and original wooden yoke originally operated by 2 pairs of oxen or horses. The word HANDEROLLANS is painted on one of the wheel spokes. In the barn, linked by round overhead drive shaft, is round wooden threshing drum. The barn is attached on the left to a single-storey rubble and cob shippon which is in turn adjoining a C17 house (now used as farm building) with hearth at each end (one with 2 ovens) and 2 original 2-light, internally ovolo-moulded wooden mullioned windows, one with surviving diagonally set bars and rebating for leaded glazing. The whim house and barn contain some of the most complete C19 animal powered threshing machinery in Cornwall.
