not certain; probably a 3-room, through-passage plan house, the service end to the
right of the passage and heated by a rear external lateral stack with set offs and a
very tall brick shaft, with a further room beyond, probably added in the C19. Hall
heated by an axial stack backing onto the passage; inner room, rebuilt and
subdivided, now forms a separate dwelling heated by another axial stack. Both axial
stacks with brick shafts. 2 storeys.
Exterior Front: the rebuilt inner room is slightly recessed from the plane of the
front; overall a 6 window range, all windows with late C20 casements, those to the
first floor with lintels at eaves level, except for the extreme left-hand window
which has an eyebrow eave. Late C20 fenestration to left-hand side and rear.
Slated lean-to to right-hand end.
Interior (not.fully inspected): jointed cruck truss (one blade observed to rear of
passage, side pegged joint with long straight upper member, possibly C17). Service

stops. Large chamfered lintel to hall fireplace. Unstopped chamfered axial beam to
