Inside, 2 bays of the original house survive, with a fine exposed ground-floor
ceiling: main beam with multiple roll-moulding and run-off stops. At one end
of the room the wall is covered with C16 panelling in long panels, said to

part of the present house. On the upper floor studding with cranked braces at
the corners, and a number of blocked original windows. A fireplace with a
plain timber lintel, and a 4-centred arched doorway with leaf carving in the
spandrels. Arched braces to the tie-beams. Roof in short bays-with one row
clasped and one row unstepped butt purlins and windbraces. The adjoining

aligned south-east north-west, has 3 windows to each floor: 3-light casements,
with transomes and horizontal glazing bars. A central entrance door with 6
raised fielded panels. One end chimney-stack. The farm lies on the boundary
of the 3 parishes of Ilketshall St. Margaret, St. Michael South Elmham, and
