Originally a fully timber-framed house of at least 2 bays with an aisle to rear.
Probably late C16. Front and east gable walls of narrow hand-made bricks of early C18
appearance. A single course of large stones at base of front wall. Brick dentilled
eaves. Pantile roof of very steep pitch which is continuous over outshot at rear and has
a parapet at the east gable. 2 storeys in present form. 2 bays. Front: C19 small
sash windows, entrance to right with modern door and blocked entrance to centre. To
the left a roughly oval patch of cement rendering suggesting a blocked oval fire window
of C17 type. Rear: timber frame exposed but disturbed by later building. Interior:
much exposed timber including posts, braces and the beams, an inglenook beam and a
section of wattle-and-daub filling. The roof structure consists of stout common
rafters, pegged at apex and linked by slightly cambered collars about 1/3 of the way
between apex and tie-beam. The rafters over the aisle run from the arcade plate to the
wall plate. B Harrison, Report, 1973, North Yorkshire and Cleveland Vernacular
