INTERIOR: earliest block is C15, N-S range to E, stout
studding, widely spaced with arched exterior bracing, unjowled
storey posts and cambered tie-beams with bracket arched braces
with step stopped chamfers. Wall plates with edge halved and
bridled scarf joints. N end now cut back but evidence for
double mullioned windows on both E and W sides of first floor,
one window still intact in wall, also window sill on ground
floor. Soffit tenoned flat laid joists of this period with
trimming frame round later stack, over size probably for
original timber-framed chimney. Also high isolated lintel beam
over fireplace remains as part of the redundant framing. Later
C16 insertion of stack. 3 original plastered fireplaces remain
with 4 centred arches and chamfers stopped high up on jambs.
Contemporary timber-framed range added to W side with stack on
N end, floor joists deep sectioned with diminished haunched
tenons, some replacement of joists in original block with
lamb's tongue chamfer stops on principal binding joist. Stair
tower also contemporary, octagonal newel post and principal
bearer of landing with lamb's tongue chamfer stop. On ground
floor, door inserted diagonally between stack corner and
centre of stair tower, depressed 4-centred arch and lamb's
tongue chamfer stops to frame. In C19 alteration N-S central
corridor to front door continued at junction of the 2 earlier
builds providing the symmetrical facede of the S front. In the
corridor a principal post of the early block has 2 rising
display braces implying that a medieval hall once ran from
this 'high' end wall towards the W.
