broach stops supported on similarly stopped wall posts. Front wall of
close studding and rear wall replaced in the C18 of close studding with
lengthy angle braces. Two 4-centered arched door heads, one to a service
room at one side of the screens passage (now partially blocked) and the
other at one side of the inserted hearth. To the first floor is a truss

from an open hall altered at the time of the addition of an upper storey by
cutting the tie beam and raising its central portion on stilts.
