Central axial stack, set at end of right section: lower portion of shaft is
original, the upper part rebuilt C19. Small late stack on outside of left
gable end. Interior. Left section has good full-height studding with curved
wall braces and blocked diamond-mullioned windows. Cambered tie beams with
heavy arched braces. On the ground floor the ceiling of the main room has a
chamfered bridging beam and heavy plain joists. Plain crown-post roof with
largely unbraced collar purlin. In the right hand section, some plain
studding with S-shaped wall braces. Unmodernised service chamber to extreme
right has 2 blocked diamond-mullioned windows and remains of black paintwork
on the timbers, probably original. Ground floor structure largely concealed
and service partition removed. Behind the stack is a newel stair,
substantially original, in a small addition with a well-preserved ovolo-
mullioned window.
