Unchamfered heavy lodged floor joists; the service rooms were formerly divided
by a wattle-and-daub partition. Evidence for speres at cross-entry and at the
parlour doorway. An inserted upper floor with chamfered joists in the hall,
with a large altered open fireplace backing onto the cross-entry, both of
