Circa 1700, former small house. Two storeys and gable-lit attic. Built in coursed
golden rubble. Tiled roof now with roof lights. End chimneys the right hand one
ashlar, coped verges. South-east front has 2 windows, 3-light mullioned type, with
cornices on ground floor. A single light and a 2-light attic window to south-west
gable. North-west front has a small 2-light mezzanine window with cornice but no
trace of a door - perhaps therefore a stair-window, in which case this could have been
a pair of cottages (other stair to south-west). Small wooden firelight with oak
diagonal mullion. Fireplace slightly extended to north-east, now part of extension
from Railway Inn (qv). Entrance in this extension beside chimney. A puzzling cottage
perhaps entered from gable end from the start.
Interior: both beams and joists chamfered with ogee stops on ground floor and ridge
stops on 1st floor. Attic divided in 2 by an upper cruck.
