was single-storey at one time with evidence of charring on the wall (information from
tenant) suggesting fire damage.

wide C19 plank door and a wide, open porch with a hipped slate roof. Windows a
mixture of C20 timber casements with glazing bars or square leaded panes. The tiled
roof is carried down as a catslide to the outshut.
Interior: The 2 right hand rooms have chamfered crossbeams with good mid/late C17
scroll nick stops. The left hand room has a plain axial beam. Several C18 2-panel
doors indicate refurbishment at this date.
Roof: The main trusses are probably C18 or C19, the rafters replaced in the C20 when
the thatch was replaced with tile.
