mainly plastered over, but clearly visible inside coal hole and to wall between
front and rear cells at both levels; corner posts and wall plates also visible;
exposed spine beam running north-south to each of ground floor rooms, chamfered

openings probably of original size. Simple C18 fireplace to parlour and horizontal
brass plate fixed below shelf. Early, probably original, vertical planked door
to south room on upper floor, with wrought iron hinges, latch and handle. Other
woodwork of circa late C18, including staircase door set in vertical boarded

and that to store beneath stairs and to door dividing parlour and kitchen, have
wrought iron hinges. Circa late C18 dresser with 3 shelves fixed to east wall
of kitchen. A good surviving example of a modest dwelling type now relatively
