The old barn.

The last building in common use blocks the gable of the chapel, but appears, nonetheless, to be very ancient.  The work done on a carriage house door of the gutter wall, which crumbled into the courtyard, is visible.  A smaller door was opened and was in turned blocked up.

The framework of this building is ancient and adapted to the use of a hayloft on the upper level.  The bare tie-beams are very high and the foot of the rafters is curved towards the interior of the building, thus enabling maximum volume for feed storage.
