Farmhouse. Late C15 divided into two dwellings in C19.
Timber-framed and plastered with modern plain tile roof and
later rear outshut. Large C16 ridge stack of local red brick
with dentil string course and three reduced octagonal shafts
with moulded bases rebuilt in local yellow brick possibly in
C17. End stack to west of similar brick. Two storeys with
attics. Three modern first floor and ground floor casement
windows with half glazed door to left hand. Three unit plan
with central open hall with chamber over the parlour to the east
internally jettied. The jetty was removed when the chimney was
inserted and part of the attic floor. The closed truss to west
of hall is complete. The C15 floor frames have joists with
centre tenons; soffit tenons to attic floors also of C15 date.
Hall floor frame inserted in C17 has an axial beam with ovolo
moulding. Side purlin roofs at each end intact, re-used
crown-post roof timbers over hall possibly a C17
reconstruction. Re-used door head in attic. One diamond
mullion window and shutter grooves visible. Other details
masked by plaster, (lack of smoke blackening in hall would
suggest an original rear side stack to hall, removed in C16,
when outshut was added and internal stack constructed).
