thatched roof. Formerly a 3-unit, cross-passage plan, but much altered, with a C20

original rooms. The front elevation has irregular fenestration. excluding the
C20 extension, there are 3 to both storeys, the middle ground floor window marking
the position of the original entrance. All casements are C20. The present
entrance is at the extreme right-hand end of the building, set between two stone
buttresses. There are 2 axial stacks, one to the right and backing onto the former
through-passage, the other marking the division between the middle room and C20

closed hip cruck at the right-hand end. Some rafters show evidence of soot-
