- II

Former farmhouse, C15 or early C16 core with alterations of mid C16. 3-cell plan.
One storey and attics. Timber-framed and plastered. Thatched roof with axial
chimney of red brick. Mid C20 casement with small panes; two flat-roofed bay
windows. C20 thatched gabled porch at lobby entrance position with boarded and
battened door. A fragmentary open hall of 2 bays at the centre of the building:
smoke-blackened coupled rafter roof with evidence for a hip to left; the house must
have been of 2-cell form. An altered original diamond-mullioned hall window. The
open truss is missing apart from posts with arch brace mortices. A cell was added
to left in mid C16: arch windbraced close studding and heavy lodged unchamfered
floor joists. A cell was added to right later in C16 in place of the original
service cell. Diamond-mullioned windows also at this stage. Floor joists slightly
less massive, also an upper floor was inserted in the hall.
