An intact frame in 4 bays, with almost straight arched braces. Evidence for
original diamond-mullioned windows. Cambered tie beam over former open hall
has evidence for crown-post. The parlour, entered by an original 4-centre
arched doorway, has substantial plain joists, perhaps a replacement ceiling of

chamfered joists, a stack being inserted into the upper bay at the same time.
