Former farmhouse, c.1570. 1 storey and attics. 3-cell cross-passage entrance
plan. Timber-framed and plastered with late C20 cable-pattern pargetting in

brick. C19 and C20 small pane casements. Glazed C20 entrance door in open
porch. An unusual sub-medieval house. Twin service rooms (now united).
Cross-passage with massive brick chimney backing onto it. The single-bay hall
has a recess apparently for a bench at the "upper" partition. Loft above hall
and parlour is only sub-divided by an open truss. Late type of crownpost roof
with square posts totally unbraced. Evidence for shuttered diamond-mullioned
windows. Wide lintelled hall fireplace has an integral smoke-curing chamber
at 1st storey level, with stout built-in hanging poles. Access was only from
