attic. Small-paned casement windows of C19 and mid C20 date. Cross-entry
doorway with C19 4-panel door. Small hoodmoulds over all main openings. To

stack to rear, within later range. Lean-to addition on left gable end.
Interior considerably modernised. Plain studding with reverse-curved braces,
the braces at the later end cranked. 2-bay hall with chamfered-joist ceiling,
one bay altered to accommodate a mid C20 stair. Girding beam set into main
stack bears the date 1596. Newel stair by stack has been retained. Roof has
