existing plan of the main range is battle entrance against to the chimney-breast with
back to back fireplaces in an axial stack, hall and unheated inner room to the left,
putative lower end to the right. The lower end fireplace is brick and may have been
added within the width of a former was converted to a parlour. The rear left wing is

the right end which has a taller roofline. C20 gabled porch to the left of the C19
block which also has a French window. C20 2- and 3-light timber small-pane
casements.
Interior: Rich is carpentry. The hall has chamfered stopped crossbeams, a plank and
muntin screen with chamfered stopped muntins on the hall side and an original
doorframe into the inner room. Massive open fireplace, the chamfered lintel slightly
raised in the C20, with chamfered Beerstone ashlar jambs with unusual drop-shaped
stops and a massive rounded bread oven which projects into the room and rises to the
ceiling. Chamfered crossbeam to the wing. C19 joinery in the added block.
Roof: Side-pegged jointed cruck trusses to the main range with mortised collars and
trenched purlins, no evidence of smoke blackening visible upstairs and no access to
the apex at time of survey (1988). There is a framed partition on the first floor
above the hall, not associated with a truss. The wing also has a jointed cruck roof
construction.
In spite of the C20 external renovations, the core of the late C16/early C17 house
survives with good interior features.
