now covered by modern door. Windows flanking; single bay
to left, 2 bays to right, now blocked. Granary loft
above with 3 small openings now blocked. Change in
masonry at quoins suggests possible raising.
S gable with cart-arch and 2 pitching holes above, now
blocked. Further pitching hole to loft.

smaller openings flanking, 3 windows to loft, now
Lower range adjoining to left with 2 doorways and window

Statement of Special Interest
Unusual form for a granary; not multi-arched cartshed
with granary above. Possibly a girnal house for storing
landowner's grain; high doorways suggest grain may have
been stored on the sheaf, although it was more usually
stored on corn ricks out of doors.
