Description: Horsewalk.

Following use as a smelthouse and metalworking shop, the building was converted to agricultural uses in the early 19th century, and was later used as a threshing barn after a horsewalk was installed. The remains of the raised platform on which the horse walked, driving a mill within the building, can still be seen.
