Cottage, of late C16 or early C17 origin, much altered in C19.

parts. Steeply pitched roof, originally thatched, now with buff
pantiles and a small C19 gault brick ridge stack. Three bay
plan with lobby entry. One storey and attic. One C19 dormer.
The fenestration in C19 or C20, including a hung sash of four
panes. Inside some of the framing in the rear wall is exposed
and the ceiling in the centre bay is mid-C16 or early C17. The
joists are unmoulded and laid flat. The roof is substantially
intact particularly over the centre and left hand bays. The
rafters are as well carpentered as the joists and are of uniform
scantling. Included for the roof and floor frame of centre bay.
