undercroft of oak postswith plain brackets. The undercroft is os seven

on right-hand side modern over a timber-framed passage-way, each containing
a tall moulded wood mullioned and transomed six-light leaded windows. 2
additional smaller lights. The east side or rear is much rebuilt, C19

is an excellant example of its type. Original queen-post roof. Jacobean
panelling and fittings, but little of it in situ. Recently well restored.
