and apple loft with cellar. Stone axial stack with moulded cap backs on to Hall
side of passage (ie. to the right); large stone external lateral stack with moulded
cap heats parlour wing; a C19 internal front lateral stack with brick shaft heats
former lower end. 2 storeys throughout.
Front: 3-window range, late C19 2-light casement windows above, 6 panes per light;
two 2-light windows of different size at ground floor to right of entrance marking
hall and former inner room. 2 light windows to rear elevation, late C19 or C20,

Roof: evidence of smoke-blackening throughout main range. 3 jointed crucks, one
over lower end, the others above Hall. Lower end cruck smoke-blackened to both
sides, originally closed. Of the 2 Hall principals, one retains its
chamfered arched-brace, whilst that to the parlour end (also originally
closed, and less heavily sooted to parlour side) has lost it. All
morticed and side-pegged at apex. Purlins trenched. Diagonal ridge-piece
and purlins sooted to extreme right-hand end. The rear courtyard
