tiles. Stone rubble gable end, axial and lateral stacks. 3-room and cross-
passage plan facing south, the lower end to the east (right). 2 storey; lower 1
storey and attic to right. Asymmetrical 5-window south front. C19 and C20 1,2
and 3-light casements with glazing bars, slate cills; ground floor right of
centre has chamfered granite lintel. Doorway to left of centre with granite
cavetto moulded 4-centred arch frame with fern-leaf carved spandrels, inscribed
above in upper case "AD 1586 BYMERC" and C20 flank door. Projecting lateral
stack on right with round oven at base and small single storey wing (privy) to

Interior: Lower right room has blocked fireplace and exposed ceiling beams.
Large centre room (hall) has closely spaced chamfered cross-beams, some with
straight-cut stops and larger fireplace with chamfered granite monolith jambs and
chamfered timber lintel with ogee stops and a cloan oven. Plank and muntin

staircase with stack balusters at back of passage. The left (west) end room has
no exposed features. Dairy has some slate shelves and C20 partition. One
surviving circa late C16 or early C17 truss over centre appears to be slightly
smoke blackened. It is a raised arch truss with chamfered curved feet the
chamfer continuing on the soffit of the cambered collar which is dove-tail lap-
jointed to the principals; trenched purlins and trenched diagonal ridge-piece.
The other later trusses have halved, lapped and pegged collars and halved and
