axial chimney of red brick, the shaft rebuilt in C20. Two C19 external gable
chimneys. Mid C20 gabled casement dormers. Mid C20 steel small-pane
casements. Mid C20 framed and boarded door at lobby-entrance positon.
Unmoulded C17 framing fully exposed throughout. On-edge floor joists and
lambstongue chamfer-stopped main beams. The house appears to have been built
with a cross-entry (later disused), but now has a lobby entrance. A further

before 1700. Large C17 lintelled back-to-back open fireplaces.
