Barn
An old barn or a disused farm house? This is how this building looked on the 11th March 2010.

The building in the above picture sits to the left of the farm house. Although an old building, the doorway is not big enough to be a barn, and four windows suggest that this could have been an older farm house, but there is no date stone present.

No further information is known about this building at present.
