standard casements without glazing bars. Half-glazed door in gable end of
wing. Main range has internal stack with original square shaft and C19 cap.
Later internal stack in wing. Interior. Cross-wing is fragment of high
quality C16 house, probably a parlour cell; the present range once continued
to the west. Former outside wall against main range has heavy close studding
with sill of oriel window and an upper window with plain mullions set square.
Central tie beam retains one solid brace with carved spandrel containing a
shield, originally painted. The cambered upper ceiling is apparently original
as there is evidence for a gable window. Intact queen-post roof, the central

missing). Main range in 4½ bays: plain first floor studding, one ground floor
room with plain joists set flat. Unmodernised former dairy at north end. Oak
