passage plan house; the service end to the left of the passage is subdivided by an

the end stack. 2 storeys.

8 leaded panes per light. Ground floor : 2-light casement to service end, 3-light
casement to both hall and inner room, and all look early C20. Door to passage,
planked and studded with strap hinges. 1 casement window to both left and right-
hand ends.

beam. Fireplace with chamfered lintel with hollow step stops, stone back and side
oven, with a C19 brick boiler in addition. Through passage with lower-end plank
and muntin screen, the muntins chamfered with carpenter's mitres, and the remains of
a doorway with the rebate for a cranked lintel; part of the screen has been
replaced by C19 joinery. Hall : 1 chamfered axial ceiling beam with hollow step
stops. Fireplace (blocked) with chamfered lintel. The half-newel stair with
original treads, risers, newel post and 1 pegged baluster and length of rail to
