C20 casements. Mid C20 battened and boarded door at cross-entry position:

the hall has regular unchamfered 1st floor joists of mid or late C16

archbraced open truss dividing it from the adjacent bay at 1st storey. A

Complete coupled-rafter roof, half-hipped at both ends until C17. The house

open sleeping loft adjacent to left, or of more advanced form where a 2-bay
chamber extends over both hall and parlour.
