Interior: Division wall between wing and housebody has 2 doorways with roll-

storey hall the roofline of which is still visible. This end is now altered to
form the smoke bay and retains its bressumer and reeded spine beams. Parlour
has fine fireplace with basket arch, cyma moulded surround and deeply sunken
spandrels. The eastern spine beam has a groove to its soffit and it would
appear that formerly service rooms were divided from the parlour. C.F. Stell,
