Interior: former hall has large open fireplace with large granite corbel on left
side; it supports a chamfered wood lintel with run-out stops, probably a C17
replacement. On right side a very large oven with granite sides and dcmed brick
roof. Opening has granite frame with curved top, and in front of it is a shallow
granite shelf; opening has an old, detachable wrought iron door with 2 handles and
with one foot surviving. To right of fireplace a staircase fitted into a curve in
the wall; at its foot the chamfered wood jambs of an early door frame. Upper floor
beam is chamfered with big convex stops. Lower room, to right, has chamfered beam
with step-stops. It runs over a stud-and-panel screen with studs, chamfered at the
front and plain at the rear; in it is a doorway with cranked head. Former parlour

between hall and lower room one end of a tie beam truss is exposed.
In late C19 upper room at left-hand end is known to have been used as a Gospel Hall
by the Plymouth Brethren, with external access from higher ground at the rear.
