Farmhouse, now house. Perhaps C16 or earlier; altered. Cruck-framed with
brick chimney, rendered, (and some added stone), thatched roof. Three
bays. Single storey with low eaves; present entrance on north side, into
3rd bay (but probably formerly on south side at junction of 1st and 2nd
bays); north side has plain doorway and low 3-light casement each side; 1st
bay with added stone cladding. South side has modern semi-circular bay in
the centre, glazed door at junction of 1st and 2nd bays, windows like those
at the front. Principal feature of interest is interior cruck frame,
composed of 2 full cruck trusses with tie-beams, spurs, curved windbraces
to the purlins, making a ceiled open hall in the centre, with a storeyed
bay at each end; the middle bay has an inglenook fireplace with a large
wattle-and-daub smoke hood, the 1st bay is axially partitioned, and has 2
re-used cruck-blades serving as lateral beams; and the cruck truss at this
end has a yoke.
