Cottage. Early C14 with C16, C18 and c.1920 additions and
alterations. Timber-framed and plastered, painted brick. Long
straw thatch and plain tile roofs. Local brick ridge stack.
One storey and attic. Aisled hall of two bays has further two
bays to east and demolished bay or cross-wing to south; the
arcade plates and unjowled posts survive with evidence of
passing braces and one truncated brace in north-west post. Late
C16 inserted floors and stack. Single storey extension to west,
late C18 or early C19, replaces one bay or cross-wing to the
aisled hall. (The brace to north-west post suggests a
continuation of the arcade as an internal wall to an enclosed
part of the aisle or cross-wing). North elevation; tall gabled
facade dormer window with horizontal sliding sashes, two ground
floor casement windows and boarded door. Interior details
include two inglenook hearths with chamfered mantel beams, and
cased and exposed main timbers of aisled hall. Chamfered floor
joists to hall.
