Farmhouse. Externally mid-C19 but contains a core of circa 1500. Timber
framed core of cruck construction, clad externally and partly rebuilt
in brick; plain tile roof; brick ridge stack. Principal range aligned
east-west facing south with C17 wing to the rear forming a T-shaped plan.
2 storeys. 3 window front of casements. Central door. Interior.
The rear wall of the west bay is timber framed; it is comprised of square
panels and incorporates at its western end an ogee-headed doorway.
Spine beam with ovolo-moulding. The central room has 2 main beams with
cyma recta mouldings and stops, and chamfered and stopped joists; there
is a central groove along the soffit of each beam. The rear wing also
has exposed wall framing: square panels and large rectangular panels.
At first floor level a doorway with cambered head communicates with the
main range. Between the western and central bay of the main range is
cruck truss. This is visible only in the loft. The eastern side is
smoke blackened suggesting that the present central bay was originally
a single-storey hall with open hearth. The cruck apex is an Alcock
