attached at right-angles to east end. One storey and attic to hall range
with 2 storeys and continuous floor band to cross-wing; framing (to No.2):
square panels, 2 from cill to wall-plate, in process of restoration at time
of re-survey (1985); moulded bressumer on north gable of No.1 shows that
this part of the house was formerly jettied; irregular fenestration; 4
late C20 gabled dormers in roof slope to south side of No.2 with 2 late C19

late C19 casement with segmental head to right on ground floor with a late
C20 fixed-light-window above boarded door to left of centre, gabled dormer

ceiling with run-out stops (probably early C16) on ground floor; 2 true
cruck trusses with cambered collars, curved windbraces and Alcock apex types
A and F2 (one immediately to west of inserted stack, chamfered and arch-
braced), showing extensive signs of smoke blackening; the side face of the
north-east cruck blade on ground floor has been cut away and a carved,
moulded post (probably early C17) joined to it: No.1 not inspected but
noted as having a chamfered cross-beam ceiling to ground-floor north room
and a double-purlin roof (purlin ends exposed externally), the pitch of
which has been raised. Alcock, (1981), p.143.
