alterations and few later alterations. Painted stone rubble and cob. Bitumenised
slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends. Large gable end stack to right with
rubble shaft, stack with shaped top at left gable end. The front wing has half-
hipped roof. The roof was probably formerly thatched, with raised coped verge to the
left gable end.
Plan: 2-room plan, with entrance to passage; larger room to left and smaller room to
right, each heated from a gable end stack. Circa late C17 - early C18, an unheated
one-room plan wing was added to front right. Probably in the C18, a parallel range
was added to rear right, of 2-room plan, with the room to right heated from a gable
end stack to right. A single storey outshut was added to front right in the angle
between the main range and the rear range.
Exterior: 2 storeys, symmetrical front with 2 windows to left and the 2-storey wing
to right. The 2 bays to left have early C18 12-pane sashes with thick glazing bars
in exposed boxes at ground and first floor. The front of the wing has early C19 16-
pane sash in exposed box at ground floor and C18 12-pane sash at first floor. C20
door at the left side. To right, the rear range has C19 16-pane sash at first floor;
single storey outshut with 6-pane sash. The left gable end is blind with a small C20
light to the attic. Straight joint to left, to a single storey and loft outshut with
2-light 6-pane casement at ground floor and 2-light 8-pane casement at first floor.
At the rear, the roof forms a catslide over the outshut; this has 2-light 6-pane
casement and C20 light; single ventilation window to left, set on the corner of the
outshut. The rear of the rear range has single casement at first floor, ground floor
2-light 8-pane casement with L hinges and C20 lean-to porch. The rear outshut is
single storey, with C20 door to side, 2 C20 lights and brick stack to rear.
Interior: Not fully accessible. There is a dog-leg stair in the outshut behind the
front room to right. The front entrance leads to a small lobby entry with plank door
leading into the front room. The room to right has slate floor; ceiled.
