Some original diamond-mullioned windows are exposed and glazed, also one with
ovolo-moulded mullions of c.1600. 1-storey gabled plaintiled entrance porch;
the doorway has reused late-mediaeval timber jambs and a C20 arched head. The
cross-wing has heavy unmoulded joists (some reused from a medieval house),
exposed studwork,and a 3-bay chamber above. Clasped-purlin roofs. The roof
over the single-bay hall is lightly smoke-blackened, either by a short-lived

hall range are on-edge and of C17 or C18, and must represent a major
alteration, possibly the conversion of an open hall.
