and a central C19 ledged and battened door. A lean-to verandah adjoins the
west elevation and continues round the north-west angle where it is bricked in
to form a storage area. At the north gable end is a doorway and an attic
light; external sandstone and brick steps lead up to an attic doorway. The
stonework in the gable suggests that the roof has been raised. Interior:
large fireplace and bread oven. Cider Mill adjoins south end. Rubble with

and external rubble steps leading up to a loft door. Interior: cider mill
and press are largely intact. Hop kilns adjoin rear of kitchen range and are

brick eaves cornices. Openings with cambered heads in east elevations.
Interior: entrances to kilns lead off passageway to rear of kitchen. The
drying floor survives in the northernmost kiln.
