stack. Full-length catslide extension to rear. C20 single-storey extension

to rear, including some in flat-roofed dormers, first floor and attic. Jowled
posts. Diamond mortices for former unglazed windows in rear girts and
wallplates, now enclosed by catslide extension. No evidence of unglazed windows
at front, so probably built in the period 1575-90 when glazing was being
generally adopted in conspicuous situations. Near-straight tension braces
trenched inside studs. Unchamfered axial beams, plain joists of square section.
Above first floor, chamfered axial beams, unstopped, with plain joists of
