addition. Whitewasned cob and rubble walls. Thatch roof hipped at left end, half
nipped to right and gabled to rear wing. Tall brick lateral stack at front and
projecting rubble stack to rear gable with brick shaft.

been demolished and an early C20 lean-to built in its place. Hall is heated by
front lateral stack with a projecting window bay adjoining it. Unheated inner room
behind which was a large heated kitchen or parlour later C17/early C18 wing. Stairs

Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front of circa mid C20 1 and 3-light
casements. The ground floor right-hand window lights the hall and is in a single

beams. Hall fireplace and roof trusses may also be of interest.
This house survives in a fairly unaltered state with a very picturesque exterior and
has considerable landscape value.
