and rear of crosswings and with hall range of equal ridge height. The front
is of cream painted boarding and the gables are jettied forward on straight cut
brackets. The first floor has C19 double hung sash to south crosswing, a 3

and brick drum on top. Against south flank is a C18/C19 stack and peg tile
lean-to with gabled porch to the outshot attics. A continuous peg tiled lean-to

All rear is without windows and is black boarded as are north and south flanks.
Interior reveals unusually framed structure with 'in-line' jowls and subsidiary
framing, unjowled posts forming stack and cross-passage bays. A number of
diamond mullioned windows survive complete and the internal wall bracing is
convex in profile rather than the usual concave. Remains of original dog leg
stair with turned balusters and old door to cupboard beneath. The stack has
wide inglenook opening to hall, arched cant sided fireplace to parlour and
similar smaller opening to hall, arched cant sided fireplace to parlour and
