provided by the butt joint and it is clear that the building has
had extensive refacings and alterations. One exposed corner
post of the timber frame can be seen at the left hand rear angle.
Interior; 2 bays of timber framing survive in the front range
with 2 king post trusses exposed in a 2 storey entrance hall,
which occupies one structural bay. 2 cross walls have close
vertical studding with bottom and mid rails and exposed wall
plate. The wall between front and rear range is also of timber
frame construction and the two main bay posts are exposed. In
the rear 3 fireplaces are grouped to serve 3 rooms from one
stack. In the front dining room the large inglenook fireplace is
spanned by a chamfer moulded beam with stepped stops. This room
is panelled to full height in oak with fluted pilasters and a
semi circular cupboard with intarsia stars in the panels. The
rear lounge also has 2 exposed bay posts and a C17 stone
fireplace with chamfer moulded surround. The 1st floor has a
passage with exposed studding which has been reconstructed in
C20. The house has undergone extensive refurbishment in C20 and
it seems likely that much of the panelling has been repositioned.
