A C16 timber framed 2 storey building which has been spoiled by refronting
with roughcast between the beams, the replacement of some of the beams and
the insertion of modern windows on the South front. West front still
retains its character except that some of the windows here also are modern
and the plaster has been removed. The 1st floor overhangs. Red tiled roof.
