Interior. Three bay frame. Ground floor chamfered beams with double stops on hefty braces. Fireplace bressumer partly papered over. The upper floor formed a single chamber. First floor inserted ceiling, replaced and strengthened 2003-4, cutting into previously truncated tie beams on knee braces, possibly a false hammerbeam roof. Very fine roof with three open trusses with large arch braces from collar to rafters. Central truss smoke blackened although wattle and daub panel above is not.
