moulded chamfer stops to beams and former inglenook fireplace to right;
former parlour left - a fine bolection-moulded fireplace and a similar fine
surround in the room above. The 1735 date probably relates to the insertion
of the fireplaces in the left gable, alterations to the main fireplace against
the right gable and the insertion of the window with architrave.
