plain reveals and a one-light chamfered window. To their left is a rebated

a stair. At the left is a blocked window with timber surround. On the 1st
floor are 2 small windows with plain reveals. On the south side is a later
lean-to addition, covering blocked mullioned windows, and a blocked doorway
which once formed a lobby entry. Inside, the western room, now a shippon, has
2 chamfered axial main joists. The 2 eastern cells are now open to the roof.
Their west wall has a recess for a firehood, now removed. At the east end, at

this probably served a 1st floor parlour. The roof trusses have been renewed
in softwood.
