stack with granite shaft.
Plan: A late medieval open hall house in origin,(lower end to the right) floored in
2 phases; the inner room first, the floor of the chamber over jettying into the
hall, the hall and lower end floored subsequently with the hall stack inserted,
backing on to the through passage; the inner room and lower end probably unheated
until the C18 or C19. The wide passage has been partly remodelled with a small
room inserted to the rear, the stair rises to the rear of the hall with access from

brick-lined bread oven; 2 chamfered C17 cross beams with step nick stops decorated
with carving; jetty over good plank and muntin screen to inner room with chamfered
muntins with diagonal stops and an original cambered doorframe. The room in the
passage re-uses some muntins from a former screen. The lower end room has a
roughly dressed exposed crossbeam.

mortised into the principals, diagonally-set ridge. Apex of roof not
thoroughly inspected but heavily sooted over the hall and complete with rafters,
