asbestos roof. Large stone rubble stack to lower end. Axial stone rubble stack

to right with hall heated by axial stack backing onto through-passage. Extending at
right-angles from front right end of lower end is a low 2-storey kitchen/dairy
range, with the lofted cider-house attached at the right end of the dairy. The inner
room end appears to have been extended at a later date to the rear by the addition
of a wing, the outer face of which faces the road and forms separate entrance front.

forming the dividing wall.

per light and 3-light dairy window. Cider-house has C17 3-light chamfered mullion
window with 4 pigeon holes to right above C19 2-light mullion window both to right of
plank door. Outer face of rear wing facing road has C19 3-light casement 8 panes
per light to each floor to left of 16-paned sash above and just to left of C20 plank
door with canted bay window with sashes with margin glazing bars and hipped slate
roof to right.
Interior: brief inspection of lower end only suggested interior largely unspoilt in

cross ceiling beam. C17 chamfered doorframe between chamber over lower end and
kitchen wing. Wing has C17 truss with morticed and tenoned collar. Roofspace over
