Farmhouse. C18 and C19 brickwork, C17 hammer-dressed stone
but incorporating a set of 3 cruck trusses which may be of
medieval origin. Graduated stone slate roof partly replaced
by corrugated sheet. The cruck building consists of 2 bays
including a cross-passage. A gabled stone crosswing was
added to the right and a brick crosswing to the front of the
left bay. The brick walls of the main range replace former
timber-framed walls. The whole is now of 2 storeys although
the hall was probably open to the roof at one stage. The
brick ranges have various window openings, some with flat
brick arches, some with timber lintels and one with an
elliptical brick arch. The left crosswing has a projecting
gable chimney stack. The cross-passage is adjacent to the
stone crosswing which has two small chamfered window
openings. The right return has a 2- light (fire window) a 4-
light and a 3-light ground floor window. Blocked 2 and 3-
light windows on first floor and at rear. All have chamfered
stone mullions some of which are recessed. The wing conceals
the former gable-end of the house which contains decorative
plasterwork at the apex. It also contains a timber-framed
partition dividing it into 2 rooms. The house-part has an
inglenook fireplace with heck post. Timber framed internal
walls. The closed cruck trusses have tie-beams at ceiling
height and their considerable dimensions suggest an early
date. The survival of such a structure is rare in this area.
