House, early C14 and C16, extended in C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed
with handmade red clay tiles. 2-bay service crossing (of an early C14 hall
house, of which the remainder has been demolished), aligned NW - SE, with C18/19
external chimney stack on SW side. 2-bay extension to NW, C16, with axial
chinmey stack at NW end, C17. Single-storey extension beyond, C19, and lean-to
extension to SW. C20 extension to NE, forming a T-plan. Aspect SW. 2
storeys. C20 door, 3 C20 casement windows, 2 more on first floor. The interior
of the C14 crosswing has heavy studs at 686mm centres in the side walls, 355mm

The central tiebeam is steeply cambered, with one arched brace present, the
other removed. Each wallplate has a splayed and undersquinted scarf with face-
key secured by 2 edge-pegs, The roof was originally of crownpost construction,
altered to clasped purlin construction in the late C16. The floor and the lower
side walls of the SE bay exhibit much alteration, apparently due to a fire. The
C16 extension has jowled posts, plain-chamfered axial beams with joists of
horizontal section. The NW end is of interrupted tiebeam construction, possibly
for a timber-framed chimney originally, now covered by a C17 brick chimney
stack. Each wallplate has an edge-halved and bridled scarf. In the upper NE
wall there is an unglazed window with 3 diamond mullions, now inside the C20
extension. Clasped purlin roof.
