early C19 and restored in circa 1970. Cob refaced in early C19 in stone rubble now

insertion. Interior: Roof largely replaced. Principals at lower end are visible in
first floor room. 2 stone newel stairs at rear. Screen at lower side of passage

octagonal, with large cushion-stops slightly keeled.
