House. Early C16. One-and-a-half storeys; basic 3-cell plan. Timber-framed
and rendered with thatched roof. 3 C20 3-light casement windows with a single
bar to ground storey; 3 gabled dormers with 2-light single-bar casement
windows. C20 plank door. An internal chimney-stack with a plain red brick
shaft, and 2 end chimney-stacks. Framing exposed inside: some replacement
studding, housings for diamond-mullions; in the main 2-bay room a plain, heavy
ceiling with joists set flat, and some indications in the upper room of
alterations: a tie-beam and brace removed. The ceiling may be a later
insertion. In the partition wall to the south, the remains of an arched
doorway, blocked, and indications of another doorway. In the one-bay room at
the south end, the joists are thin and set on edge, either as a replacement or
a later insertion. All the ceilings are very low. At the north end, an C18

gable is visible inside with the remains of C17 roughcast and pargetting: 3
panels with a 'tree of life' motif, and part of a roundel.
