square panels, 2 from cill to wall-plate, in process of restoration at time
of re-survey (1985); moulded bressumer on north gable of No.1 shows that
this part of the house was formerly jettied; irregular fenestration; 4

A and F2 (one immediately to west of inserted stack, chamfered and arch-
braced), showing extensive signs of smoke blackening; the side face of the
north-east cruck blade on ground floor has been cut away and a carved,
moulded post (probably early C17) joined to it: No.1 not inspected but
