Early features to dwelling concentrated in cross-wing though fireplace lintels and

that situated away from the hall range has shouldered jambs. 4 raised cruck
trusses to cross-wing, but no access to roofspace at this end. Chamber to left of

the 3 faces near the feet of the inner left side cruck blade. At head of staircase
at the juncture of hall range and cross-wing, one cruck blade, probably of a raised
cruck, survives of the open hall roof structure plastered into the dividing wall.
