Farmhouse. Circa mid C17 extended with outshuts to rear in circa early to mid C18.
Rendered stone rubble and cob. Slate roof with gable ends continued in catslide over
rear outshut. Truncated projecting chimney on higher gable end. Rear lateral
chimney stack incorporated in C18 outshut with C20 brick shaft. C20 brick shaft at
lower gable end.
3 room and cross passage plan. Hall appears to have been used as a hall-kitchen
heated by a rear lateral stack and is therefore is a late example of the plan type.
The inner room was heated by a gable end stack and the lower room may not have been
originally heated. C19 stair in cross passage, possibly in original stair position.
C18 outshut added along full range to rear. The rear lateral hall fireplace may have
been reorientated in the C18 enabling the central room of the outshut to be used as a
kitchen. Dairy in outshut to rear of inner room.

later corrugated roof. Ground floor with 2 C19 16-pane sashes to left of C20 glazed
door with further C19 16-pane sash to right. First floor with 4 early C19 16-pane

for threaded purlins with 1 purlin surviving and 2 original cambered and chamfered
collars surviving, halved and pegged onto face of principals. Lower end with closed
truss above lower side of cross passage. 2 trusses replaced probably in C18 with
