-- II

Farmhouse. A complex house, mainly of C15 and C16, with considerable later
alteration. Timber framed and plastered with a pantiled roof. 2 storeys and

doorway to left but with plain pilasters and lions' heads as embellishments.
6-panel doors. Internal stack and gable stack to right, both with C19

secondary mullioned windows; eaves raised at a later date. At the left are 2

panelling in hall chamber. The roof has been renewed, perhaps in late C18. A
fireplace between the hall and parlour was removed in C19 and replaced by a
