gabled to the rear, and a rear lean-to contain service rooms, a stair and an axial
passage linking this block to the earlier house at the right. The earlier house
consists of 2 rooms, the left one heated, and has been subdivided into smaller rooms
on the ground floor.
Exterior: 2 storeys and attic to the left, 2 storeys to the right. 3-bay front to the
C19 block with a central panelled front door with a rectangular fanlight and a flat

and a framed partition above an incomplete section of plank and muntin screen between
the 2 rooms. Chamfered axial beam to (sub-divided) right hand room; chamfered
scroll-stopped cross beam to left hand room. The massive fireplace is partly blocked
but an early lintel and jambs may survive. The C19 block has co-eval chimneypieces
and iron grates to the first floor; C18 2-panel doors may be re-used or may survive
from an earlier phase of extension.
