Wrongly shown on OS map as Ironbridge Farm. House. C16, altered in early C19.
Timber framed, plastered with framing exposed, roofed with handmade red clay
tiles. 3-bay main range facing E, 3-bay crosswing to left, and internal stack
at the junction. C18/C19 internal stack at right end of main range. 2 storeys.
Ground floor, one C20 casement, one C20 splayed bay, one early C19 sash of 16

Early C19 half-glazed door in gabled porch. Crosswing jettied at front but
underbuilt, bracket exposed at left side. Another gabled porch on left return
