rubble, squared and coursed to rear wing; stone-coped pantile roof
with brick gable end stacks to left end rear right wing. L plan with

wood-mullioned windows to first floor. Right-hand south elevation,
including rear wing, has late C16/C17 three-light hollow-moulded
stone-mullioned windows to rear wing, and blocked archway (?cellar
door) to medieval gable end which has C14 single-light slit windows
above 2 blocked windows. To rear, a porch between rear wing and later
lean-to has reset C14 arched doorway with hollow/step/ogee moulding;
blocked chamfered arched doorway inside porch.
Interior: not inspected but noted as having 4 two-tier cruck-trusses,
all smoke blackened with chamfered arched and wind bracing, yoked apex
and tenoned purlins; windbrace slots to the north truss show that the
roof extended further than the present gable; similar crucks to the
rear wing. Two-centred arched and chamfered, stone doorway to first
floor rear, and piscina to first-floor centre.
Exposed beams and timber framework. Later features include C17 open
fireplaces with chamfered bressumer and C18 china cupboard with fluted
Ionic pilasters. The C14 house had a small room with an upper chamber
to the south (right) divided by a cross passage from a larger room to
the north. A high-stature C14 house, the cruck trusses being of
similar type to the Glastonbury Abbey barns and the C14 barn at
Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire. Significantly Butleigh was part of the
Glastonbury Abbey estate until 1536.
