was lengthened at the high NE end. In circa early C19 the service end
to right (SW) was removed, the whole house was faced and partly
rebuilt in brick making the rear (NW) elevation the front and

above and large late C20 brick wing on right. Interior: The medieval
timber frame that survives includes jowled wall and aisle-posts, large
moulded tie-beam across hall on moulded curved braces originally
supporting arcade posts, high end wall of hall with diagonal bracing,
solar floor, moulded aisle and wall-plates with scarf joints. Wall
framing in hall is hollow-chamfered and ovolo-moulded. Evidence for
oriel windows on front and back walls of hall. Inserted brick stack
in hall with chamfered timber lintel. C19 roof structure with some
reused moulded timbers. Sources: Norfolk County Council report and
