stone rubble; gabled thatch roof; C19 brick ridge and end stacks. Medieval hall

into a 3-unit house with lobby entry to right of centre. One storey and attic;

an early C19 four-pane casement from timber lintel over doorway blocked in early
C20 to right. Late C20 windows; C20 two-light casement to dormer. Interior: 2
