window (present window offset to right). Refaced C17 range to right; 2-and
3-light segmental-headed wooden casements, 2 to first-floor and 3 to ground
floor. Left-hand return front of Cl7 range with timber framing and jettied
gable with moulded bressumer and collar and tie-beam truss with queen struts.
Lean-to C19 porch in angle with segmental-headed half-glazed door. Left-hand
return front with irregular fenestraticn and doorway off-centre to left. Infill
range with external brick end stick. Interior: ground-floor ceiling frame in
northern-most 2 bays of eastern range with ovolo-moulded cross beams, closely
spaced ovolo-moulded joists, and central carved boss consisting of a grotesque
mask with dragons at each corner. Dining room has deeply-chamfered cross-beam ceil-
ing with large broach stops, and C17 panelling. Some reused C17 panelling in
hall. Old panelled and boarded doors. East and south range have exposed wall
plates with closely-spaced peg holes which suggest that the former framing in
these walls was similar to that still surviving in the north front (i.e. closely-
spaced studs with middle rail).
