Farmhouse, now private dwelling. Probably early C16, remodelled in c17 with C20
alterations. Rendered stone rubble and cob. Slate roof. House faces away from

left end. Through-passage, hall and inner room, and room over cart entrance'.

lower half. 2-light timber mullion window at right end. Large double plank doors
to cart entrance.
Interior: stop chamfered beams to hall and inner room. Old chamfered doorframes to

and stop chamfered door surround to stair turret doorway to rear of hall, similar
surround to upper storey rear passage doorway. 2 raised cruck trusses over hall

surviving to foot of rear blade. The truss over lower end has some slight smoke-
blackening, with collar tenoned into soffit mortices to the blades, the other truss
is clean and has lap-jointed collar, so is possibly an early C17 replacement.
Another truss to the gable end of the main range forms a closed partition with the

trusses have threaded purlins and ridge purlin partly intact. To the base of the
