chamber window. Thatched roof with axial chimney, the shaft rebuilt in mid
C20 red brick. 3- and 4-light mid C20 casements. C20 gabled plaintiled porch
with boarded door, at lobby-entrance position. The parlour-block to left has
heavy unchamfered floor joists and prolific tension bracing with blocked
diamond mullioned windows (one has roll-and-cavetto mullions). C17 back-to-
back lintelled open fireplaces. In the hall are heavy chamfered floor joists.
The later roof has windbraced clasped purlins; the central truss over the hall
