forming a diaper pattern. An external service chimney to left is similar, but
also has a sawtooth shaft. Late C18 or early C19 3-light casements. Mid C20
battened and boarded entrance door. A single-storey extension to left of
C17/C18, and a lean-to C19 extension to right. Interior: The smoke-encrusted
open hall roof was originally of crownpost form: the post has been damaged

braces, and is no longer in the structure. It has a plain splayed capital
with 4-centred curved solid plank braces. The hall has widely-spaced tension-
braced studding, and a.blocked 4-centred arched cross-entry doorway. The
cross-wing was added c.1600, when basecrucks were inserted at the upper level
at the junction with the service cell of the older building.
