pitched corrugated iron and asbestos slate roof with gable ends. Slate roof to rear
projecting wing with gable end and lower corrugated iron roof with gable end to
projecting wing at front. Stone rubble projecting chimney stacks at gable ends of
main range and brick stack to C19 rear projecting wing.

passage. Parlour (now dairy) at higher end (left) and larger kitchen at lower end
(right). Both heated by end stacks. Through passage blocked at front by addition of
short originally unheated 2-storey projecting wing, circa mid C17, with C19 fireplace
in lower side wall with shaft removed. Entrance to farmhouse inserted leading
staight into kitchen room at lower end. House may have continued at lower end where
the stonework in a projecting wing of the adjoining barn, now converted into a
dwelling, appears contemporary. However, there is little evidence. Further wing
added at higher end to rear in mid C19.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2-window front with timber lintels to openings. Ground
floor with C19 2-light casement with glazing bars to left at higher end. 2-light
casement without glazing bars on ground of projecting wing with slate string above

casement without glazing bars in gable end of projecting wing. Rear elevation with
C19 3-light casement with glazing bars to kitchen on left. Lean-to stone rubble
porch in angle with projecting rear wing with wall set slightly forward. First floor
with late C19 2-light casement and C19 2-light casement with glazing bars above rear
entrance. Eaves possibly raised on left. C19 casements to rear wing.
Interior Unaltered C19 interior. Kitchen at lower end heavy chamfered ceiling beams
with runout stops. Screen lower side of probable earlier through passage removed.

C19 interior.
