House. Late C16, altered in late C17. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with
handmade red clay tiles. Main range of 4 bays facing NE, and 2-bay crosswing to

attics. 5-window range of early C20 casements, 2 C20 casements in flat-roofed

hipped at both ends. The rear stack has grouped diagonal shafts with truncated
octagonal shafts above. The interior has jowled posts, 2 transverse chamfered
beams with step stops, one axial beam with double ogee moulding. Mortises for
unglazed windows in the rear wall at both ends, now within the right extension.
The crosswing has original hearths with depressed brick arches at both levels.
Face-halved and bladed scarfs in the wallplates. This house is unusually
datable to c.1575, re-roofed in a continuous run in the late C17. In the attic
is an unusual wooden pen approx. 2 x 3.50 metres, with open slats to the
ceiling, with door and stock-lock, all made with handmade nails and hardwood,
probably C19. Its purpose is uncertain, but it may relate to cock-fighting.
