and through-passage bay at north-east end. Cross-wing of probably three bays

of close-set studding and partly four panels from sill to wall-plate. No
trusses visible externally. North-west front elevation: hall range has a

gable end and a stable door in the angle. Interior: roof has collar and tie-
beam trusses with struts. Hall has chamfered main ceiling beams which divide
the ceiling into eight compartments. Barn added in C17 at north-east end.
Two framed bays. Large opposed doorways in north-east end bay. Interior:
framing comprised of three panels from sill to wall-plate with short straight
upper corner braces. Roof has collar and tie-beam trusses with raking struts.
(north-east end truss and additional central strut and a V-strut above the
collar); two tiers of trenched purlins. A blocked doorway that led off the
passageway suggests the plan to be a longhouse derivative. (RCHM, III, p 56,
