casement; ground-floor 3-light wooden casement to right (formerly door -
see straight joints beneath), and cross-wing with 2-light metal attic
casement and ground-floor 3-light wooden-framed metal casement, both
with segmental brick relieving arches; half-glazed boarded door in
angle of cross-wing with late C20 lean-to store and timber-framed glazed
porch. Right-hand return front with straight joint between C16 masonry
of stack and C19 masonry replacing former timber frame. C20 two-storey
stone addition set back to right. C19 gabled wing at rear. Interior:
left-hand ground-floor room with chamfered spine beam, supported
by chamfered and stopped post at one end; large open fireplace with
chamfered stone reveals and former ceiling beam inserted as lintel
in C20; small square wooden wall cupboard to left with H-hinges; cross-
wing has square-panelled timber framed cross-walls; ground-floor front
room of cross-wing has been remodelled in the C18 with new plastered
ceiling beam inserted transversely (see mortices for former spine beams);
C18 door with raised and fielded panels and C18 panelled doors with
H-hinges flanking C20 fireplace; old winder staircase in cross-wing.
Despite the rebuilding of most of the external walls in the C19 this
house still retains much timber framing and other earlier features
