House, 1699. Sandstone rubble with slate roof. 2 storeys, 3 bays. Windows
rebated and chamfered with mullions, of 3 lights except for the central

with hood, inscribed: '1699RWM'. Gable chimneys, the right-hand one with
projecting stack. Inside, the right-hand room has exposed chamfered main
joists and a fireplace with splayed sides and plain lintel. The left-hand
