II
Farmhouse. Mid to late C17. Random rubble chert; gable end corrugated iron roof.
A 2 room plan house; the rooms are of unequal size. There may have been a central

fireplace), but this position is now occupied by a bathroom. Right-hand room heated
by internal end stack; left-hand room heated by an axial stack; both with brick
shafts.
Exterior Front: 3 window range; one 3-light and two 2-light C19 casement windows to
first floor; 2 C19 3-light casement windows to ground floor, one to either side of a
pair of doors (one planked, one glazed; the house was formerly 2 cottages).
Breezeblock porch. Later continuous rear outshut, probably C19, with C19 windows
and door.
Interior: one chamfered ceiling cross beam with hollow step stops to each room.
Details of fireplaces obscured, but they still survive behind the present grates.
Roof trusses with long straight principals and large roughly finished purlins.
