exposed framing, jettied with 7 scrolled brackets. C20 door, 4 C20 sash windows
on ground floor, and 2 blocked original windows each with a single ovolo
mullion. On first floor, 3 C20 sash windows and 2 small original windows.
Hipped roof. The timber frame is exposed also on the SW elevation. The NW

relates to Thomas and Sarah Cracherode, 1679, whose memorials are in the chancel
of the parish church. The farm was formerly called Goddinges. RCHM 4
