At least the hall and high end and probably also the low end of the

Rear (NE) has 1, 3 and 4-light casements with leaded panes, with
eyebrow eaves over first floor windows.
INTERIOR: Hall has chamfered axial ceiling beam with cyma stops and
large stone fireplace with similarly stop chamfered timber lintel.
Rear room at low (RH) end has similar axial beam. Cross beam in
parlour (left) is boxed in. Wing also has boxed in cross-beam. Smoke-
blackened raised cruck truss against high side of hall stack, its apex
