cross-beamed ceiling also with chamfered joists. Left-hand first-

Gable end of right-hand wing is timber framed with square panels, angle
braces, and cambered tie-beam truss with queen struts and v-struts.
The right-hand gable formerly projected with a timber framed wing.
This probably explains its unfinished look and the large external stack.
