mullions, now altered to 8-lights and entrance with plank door; former staircase
window with chamfered surround and round arch; C20 2-light chamfered mullioned
window to former door. Ground floor right-hand former 6-light double chamfered
mullioned window with king mullion, now only 4-light with outer mullions missing.

staircase window and small left-hand C20 window. Windows have c1975 casements.
Gable end and right of centre ridge stacks. Rear contains C17 chamfered entrance,
plank door, 3 ground floor and 2 upper floor double chamfered mullioned windows
and small chamfered staircase window. Interior: front room to left of entrance
contains secondary late C17 fireplace with chamfered surround and 13 voussoirs.
Mid C18 fireplace inserted within the larger structure in mid C20. In the cross-
passage behind the fireplace, two scarfed spine beams have been interpreted as
indicating a mid C17 timber firehood (now removed). Two fireplaces back to back
would be a rare feature, and it is more likely that the fireplace was turned round
when the late C17 inglenook was constructed. In rear (kitchen) wing of cottage
is late C17 fireplace with chamfered surround, basket arch of 15 voussoirs, with
secondary mortices to take upper floor joists, now removed. Altered King post roof
