A cruck house of the C15 or C16, partially surviving in farm outbuildings. A stone chimney was inserted (C16/17?) in what may have been the cross-passage position; a small chimney was also formed in the north gable; the house was finally given stone walls and incorporated in the farm buildings (possibly when the present farmhouse was built in the mid C19).
Farm outbuilding in local shaley quasi-rubble stonework, mostly with asbestos sheet roof covering. Part of early external chimney stack survives in the north gable.
A two-bay survival of what was probably a three- or four-bay cruck house. Two cruck frames remain. The northern frame is complete with a collar beam and a yoke, the blades abutting at the apex in the usual Denbighshire detail; tie beam with wattle and daub panels above and with the mortices of a lost post-and-panel partition visible in the soffit, the arris chamfered over the panel positions. This tie beam is linked to the north gable by a chamfered and stopped longitudinal beam.
The southern surviving frame is incomplete, having been cut to admit a later central chimney and cut at the feet. The chimney serves a large fireplace facing north, with timber bressummer.
A later fireplace in the north gable has been walled up.
Listed for interior interest as substantial remains of domestic cruck construction with inserted chimney.
