with run-out stops. On the left side of the fireplace is a built-in original settle
which has a decorative finial to its arm-rest. Between the central room and the
small service room is a stud and boarded partition with a head beam which is
chamfered on the side of the larger room
This small farmhouse retains a number of its original simple internal features and
is relatively unaltered.
