2 true cruck trusses, one approximately to centre and second at junction
with house; apexes destroyed. First truss is chamfered and has cambered
collar; beam spanning width of truss just above head height has billet moulding.
Second truss: cruck blade survives to front wall with collar but has been
cut through to back. Bay to left of first truss has inserted loft.

The farm stands within a steep-banked, roughly coursed limestone rubble
walled oval-shaped enclosure (not included in this list), ringed by yew
trees, suggestive of an early origin for the site. A church or chapel
is reputed to have been situated close by (local information).
