House, now restaurant. C15, altered in C16, C18, C19 and C20. Timber framed,
plastered and weatherboarded, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. 2-bay hall
facing SW, 3-bay crosswing to left, 2-bay crosswing to right. C19 single-storey
lean-to extension to rear of hall with stack at left end and slate roof. 2-
storey one-bay extension to rear of right crosswing, roofed with slate, and long
C19 single-storey wing to rear, partly tiled, partly slated. 2 storeys. Ground
floor, 4 C20 fixed lights. First floor, 2 C19/20 sashes of 6 lights and 2 early
C19 sashes of 3+6 lights. 2 half-glazed 4-panel doors, double half-glazed
doors, and 2-panel door at right end. Dentilled cornice above first-floor
windows of hall range only. C19 bargeboards on gables of both crosswings and
false gable in middle, with simple chamfers and piercings and moulded finials,
and plain parapets between. Both crosswings have underbuilt jetties, and the
front wall of the hall range has been extended forwards to align with them.
Tarred hardwood weatherboarding on rear elevation of left crosswing. The
interior of the ground floor is mainly faced with modern materials, but plain
joists of horizontal section are exposed in the front bay of the left crosswing.
A studded partition between the middle and rear bays of the left crosswing has
been removed, also the studded partitions at both ends of the hall, now
supported by 2 C19 cast iron stanchions. Late C16 inserted floor in hall, with
chamfered axial beam with lamb's tongue stops. The only hearth is blocked. On
the upper storey some wall framing is exposed, with curved tension bracing
trenched into close studding. Rebates for the shutters of unglazed windows. In
the left crosswing 2 chamfered arched braces to cambered tiebeam between front
and middle bays, studded partition between middle and rear bay removed. The
original crownpost roofs are exceptionally complete. The left crosswing has all
the axial braces except at the rear end, which has been altered to a hip. The
middle crownpost of the hall range is octagonal with moulded base and cap, and
4-way rising braces; collar-purlin chamfered with step stops. At the left end
of the hall roof most of the original patterned wattle and daub infill is
intact, smoke-blackened. Roof of right crosswing difficult of access, but
apparently unaltered. Both storeys of unusual height. RCHM 43.
