C20 chimney pieces in both rooms. Complete circa early C17 ceiling of cross beams
and floor joists in hall kitchen. The chamfered cross beams have spade stops on the

bay window was added in the late C20. Unmoulded floor joists at right angles.
Parlour with one circa early C17 cross beam with spade stops and mortices for floor
joists. The remaining unmoulded cross beams are heavy and closely set with much

fairly slight with chamfer and indicate a possibly mid C18 roof structure.
