House. Probably C16, remodelled C17 and C19. Cruck construction. Coursed
ironstone rubble with C19 brick extensions, asbestos tile roof, brick and stone
stack to left of centre. Cross passage, L-plan. One storey and attic; 4 bays.
Entrance in second bay from left has moulded wood frame, 4-panel door with
panelled reveals and gabled timber hood. 2-light window to left has C17 moulded
stone jambs, wood lintel and C20 metal casement to right and similar 2-light
window in the right bay. Gabled half dormers with C20 metal casements. Sides
rebuilt in brick. East gable end is said to be timber framed, Mid C19 brick
extension projecting forward from left side at rear. Interior: in easternmost
bay on the ground floor is part of chamfered spine beam, sawn off joists and
remains of an early stud partition above. Other ground floor rooms have
stop-chamfered spine beams. 2 pairs of raised crucks in roof. One with wattle
and daub infill. This may have been a C16 three bay house extended one bay to
the west in the C17. P. Woodfield has noted smoke blackening in the roof and
suggests that it was originally an open hall house.
