- II
Farmhouse. Probably C16 but earlier fabric may be concealed. Painted rendered stone
rubble and cob. Thatch roof with gable ends. Inner room has leanto corrugated iron
roof. Rendered stone rubble stack at right gable end and stone rubble front lateral
hall stack with brick quoins and capping.
Plan: 3 rooms and wide cross-passage divided axially to create small unheated rear
room. Parlour to right of passage, hall, heated by front lateral stack and inner
room, reduced to single storey in C20, to left. Roof structure not inspected but
said to be of smoke-blackened cruck construction. The hall was probably therefore
originally open to the roof. The inner room appears to be a later addition.

panes per light on each floor to hall with small 4-paned window to inner room to left
end. 3-light casement 2 panes per light above wide porch with thatched leanto roof
and plank door. No rear outshuts.
Interior: single deep chamfered cross ceiling beam to hall. Hall fireplace has
rendered cambered lintel. Plank and muntin screen to right of passage, 5 planks wide,
the muntins chamfered. Inner room entirely remodelled in C20.
