alterations. Granite and slatestone rubble, granite dressings, slate roof with gable
end stack to lower end, ridge stack to left of passage; partly slate-hung to front.

lower end room heated by gable end stack. Passage has porch to front, rear door
enclosed by later C17 dairy outshut to rear of lower end, entered through original

horizontal sliding sash at first floor, first floor level slate-hung; porch with

rougher than on porch. Roof level higher over hall, weathered ridge stack. Left
gable end has roof hipped, rough granite footings; right gable end blank. Rear has
single storey dairy outshut along whole of lower end and passage, 3 C20 windows.
Stair tower to right, with single chamfered granite light with iron stanchion.
Interior Inner doorway in porch in granite with 4-centred arch, chamfered with
