range facing NW with internal stack of c.1600 in left bay, 3-bay crosswing to
left with C19 internal stack at rear, C20 external stack to left, and

2-window range of C20 casements with rectangular leading, and half-glazed door
in doorcase of c.1800 with wooden half-columns and frieze with triglyphs. At
the rear is a similar door and doorcase, frieze missing or covered. The left
crosswing has an underbuilt jetty to the front, and in the front bay heavy plain
joists of near-square section are exposed; elsewhere in this wing and at this
end of the hall range the timber frame is mainly covered by plaster. The hall
range has been raised approx. one metre in the C17. In the right bay, large
wood-burning hearth, of which the rear part has been demolished, and inserted
floor of c.1600, comprising a chamfered axial beam with lamb's tongue stops and
plain joists of vertical section. In the right crosswing, wide curved tension
braces are trenched inside heavy studding. Jowled posts. On the ground floor 2
wood-burning hearths both with internal splays; the front hearth has an
ovolo-moulded mantel beam, the rear hearth has a chamfered mantel beam with
lamb's tongue and bar stops, and minor repairs to brickwork. In the rear bay a
medieval timber has been re-used as a floor beam, and the floor has been lifted
to compensate for subsidence of the right wall. On the first floor there is a
cast iron grate of c.1800 facing forwards, incomplete.
