House. Late C16. Formerly 2 storeys and attics, now 2 storeys, as the
original upper ceilings have been removed. Timber-framed and rendered, with
mock framing painted on the outside. Thatched roof; plain square shaft to
internal chimney stack. C20 leaded-paned casement windows, door and porch,
the latter in old red bricks, enclosed, and crow-stepped. A C20 extension at
the east end with a mansard roof. Frame in 5 bays including a chimney-bay: 2-

unchamfered joists, main beams with 2½" chamfer and curved stops. Repaired
open fireplaces. Trusses with short, straight braces, some removed, and none

end, cranked braces to the corners on long and side walls. Squint-butted
scarf joints in both wallplates. Roof with principal rafters, ceiled off just
below purlin level. There is a good deal of replacement studding, but the
main frame is still as original.
