cross-wing has a modern window with plain reveals, formerly an external
entrance to the parlour. Chimneys on south wall of cross-wing and in line
with front door, the latter having coupled caps. Interior. A lobby-entry

axial chamfered main joists with scroll stops and an ovolo-moulded firehood

upper-cruck trusses. The house is described and illustrated in detail in
Watson, R.C. and McClintock, M.E., Traditional Houses of the flylde,
Lancaster, 1979. They suggest that the northern room is earlier than the
rest of the house and that a pattern visible on the north wall in burnt
headers before the house was pebbledashed represented the date 1603.
