The description shall be amended to read:

House, C15, altered C16 and again in C17 and C18. Timber frame, rendered and
part weatherboarded. Steeply pitched hipped roof. 2 cell lobby entry. 1 storey
and attic, originally open hall with two end bays. Lobby entrance with a thatched
gabled porch, plank and muntin door. Flush frame small pane casements with
hoodboards, 3 lights to left, 5 lights to right. Weatherboarding below a 3 light
dormer with eyebrow thatching to right. Cross axial ridge stack. Catslide roof
over leanto outshut to rear right, scattered casements. Interior: Sooting to
roof timbers indicates the presence of former open hall though much of the
heavy timbering of the original crown post roof has gone. The original interior
layout with end bays for solar and service in the proportion 1:2:1 is clear and
there are indications of a large king-mullion window to the hall, to which a
cross passage door later blocked and with anarched head, also survives. The hall
was divided during the C16 when a stack was inserted; this was doubled in C17th
(a date of 1683 over porch may relate to this phase). During the C18th the plan
was altered to the present lobby entry form and the original door (QV) was blocked.
A good example of a small medieval house, albeit much mutilated.
