The barn is constructed from coursed chalk blocks with brick quoins, dentilled cornicing, tumbled gables and coursed flint on the western gable. There are several layers of limewash between the external chalk courses indicating that the barn was originally limewashed internally and externally. The building has three bays and is orientated east to west with large cart doors in the north and south walls at the eastern end of the building. Inside, the barn has a large blocked arch in the eastern wall and a doorway, with a segmental arch window above, leading to a second barn to the east. An extension to the barn to the south may have been constructed in two phases; the first phase comprising a full height room accessed by an inserted door to the barn and an external door adjacent to the original southern door. The second phase of the extension comprises two storeys with the lower having two doorways in the eastern wall constructed from brick quoins with segmental arches.
