Farmhouse. C16. Timber framed and plastered with a roof of modern plaintiles.
2 storeys and attic. 2-cell, lobby entry type. 2 windows, C18.casements of
4-lights. Intact late C18 doorway with convex frieze and heavy moulded

glazed. Internal stack, the external portion of the shaft rebuilt mid C20.
To rear a slightly later narrow gabled addition, extended to each side in mid
C20. Good interior with some fine exposed studding, much of it closely-
spaced. Several original windows, some exposed externally in left gable end
