House. C17, altered mid-C18 and mid-C20. Timber-framed with rendered and
painted brick infill on rubble base with some coursed rubble walling and
slate roof. Originally of two framed bays aligned north/south with large
external rubble chimney and detached brick stack at south end. Probably in
C18 the roof was raised and an additional bay was added at the north end
with a smaller external rubble chimney and rebuilt brick stack at its gable
end. Originally single storey and attic but roof raised to form two full
storeys. Framing: originally of three panels from sill to wall-plate with
short straight braces across the upper corners. Additional row of panels
added when roof raised. Collar and tie-beam truss with struts exposed at
south end. East front-elevation: there are two large 2-light casements
with transom lights and plank weatherings on the ground floor, and a pair
of similar smaller windows and another 2-light.casement on the first floor.
The main entrance in the central bay has a half-glazed door. There is a
C20 lean-to addition at the south end, partly enclosing the external chimney
with three single-light casements in its east front elevation. Interior
recorded to have several C17 panelled doors and a bread oven (now blocked)
in the south end chimney. The building was formerly known as Lower House.
