At rear the main roofs are carried down as catslides over brick outshuts, the south

Interior: Virtually unaltered since C19. The north range left roof has chamfered
axial beam with broach stop and chamfered joists, large fireplace with moulded shelf
and range with wide grate, ratchet pot-hanger and 2 small cupboards; section of
fielded panelling to right, the other walls matchboarded, rear wall has bench with
