a stair. At the left is a blocked window with timber surround. On the 1st

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

Their west wall has a recess for a firehood, now removed. At the east end, at
