initials 'D.K.' on porch), the rear rendered. Pantiled roof. 3 cells. 2
storeys. 3 windows, 3-light casements without glazing bars, mostly of C19

panelled door. Internal stack. 2 ovolo-mullioned windows have been exposed
at rear of parlour cell. Interior. Much plain studding with no visible
bracing. Evidence for removal of many sections of mid rail, suggesting
possible reconstruction. Blocked cross-entry doorway. In the hall, an axial

has a similar but structurally separate ceiling, the axial floorbeam bar-
stopped at one end. Service partition removed. Original upper floor in
