floor of 12 panes; those to first floor of nine panes except for a 4-light
casement to chimney half-bay; 5-panelled door in early C20 porch to left
of centre ledged door to cellar in east gable at the bottom of a flight
of narrow straight, possibly C17, steps. Frame: four regular panels from
cill to wall-plate, now with intermediate thin rails, possibly the result
of nogging replacing plaster and wattle infill; diagonal struts from corner
posts to wall-plates. Interior: the only part inspected was the cellar which
has lamb's tongue run-out chamfer stops to its two ceiling beams and two sets
of stone stairs formerly giving access to the ground floor room above.
