House. Early C17, altered in C20. Timber framed, plastered, roof thatched. 3
bays facing NE with stack behind axis of middle bay, forming a lobby-entrance.
C20 single-storey lean-to extension along full length of rear, roofed with red
clay tiles. One storey with attics. 2 C20 casements, and 3 more in eyebrow
dormers. C20 door at front of tiled gabled porch. Jowled posts. Straight
tension braces trenched inside close studding. Chamfered axial beams, both of
re-used oak. Plain joists of horizontal section, supported on pegged clamps.
Clasped purlin roof with straight wind braces to purlins, upper part ceiled. 2
large wood-burning hearths, the right hearth reduced in width. Original newel
