    Farm buildings
    Beyond the residential property and welfare unit, to the north, is an extensive range of seven former poultry buildings, associated with the sites use as a turkey breeding unit. The sheds total approximately 60,000 sq ft in all. All the buildings are constructed from a timber frame with fibre cement roof, concrete block walls, concrete floors, timber cladding with welfare windows. All sheds have mechanical ventilation. The sheds benefit from a concrete apron to the front with an access track running along the west of the sheds. The buildings are likely to include asbestos elements within the construction.
