front over cellars and having 3 gabled dormers in a Welsh slate roof. There

3 sash windows. Interior. RCHM page 166a. Includes C18 panelling in lst

a new" and her fine on renewal of lease, reduced, (ib LXIX, 369). It is
not easy to say if the core of the present house is that of the 1679 building.
