Farmhouse. Externally mid-C19 but contains a core of circa 1500. Timber

The rear wall of the west bay is timber framed; it is comprised of square
panels and incorporates at its western end an ogee-headed doorway.
Spine beam with ovolo-moulding. The central room has 2 main beams with
cyma recta mouldings and stops, and chamfered and stopped joists; there
is a central groove along the soffit of each beam. The rear wing also
has exposed wall framing: square panels and large rectangular panels.
At first floor level a doorway with cambered head communicates with the
main range. Between the western and central bay of the main range is
