Small house. Late medieval origins, early C17 remodelling, late C20 additions at
left end. Whitewashed rendered cob on stone rubble footings, thatched roof gabled at
ends, end stacks to old house which is at the right hand end of the present range.
The present plan is a single depth block at the right, formerly 2 heated rooms but
with the central partition now removed. A 1980s addition at the left-hand end
replaces former outbuildings. The late medieval roof of the right-hand block

later cob partition in the roofspace. No smoke-blackened principal rafters survive
but a later, circa C18 X apex truss has been inserted below the late medieval
A partly late medieval house with internal late C17 features.
