Farmhouse, now barn and cowhouse. Probably C17. Rubble, corrugated iron
roofs. L-plan, 2-storey, 3-bay, 2-window part roughly oriented north - south
and one storey with attic; 3-bay range runs east west respectively with lean-
to extensions to west and north. Two-storey part: gable to south, central
entrance, window openings above west side masked by late C20 corrugated iron
lean-to under which are almost complete oak mullioned windows to north and
south bays. One-storey range: 2 entrances next to each other near junction
with 2 storey part. East gable end has dripstone to central ground floor
window and gable window above, the former having holes for 4 diamond section
mullions. Interior: north bay of 2 storey part is occupied by fireplace,
stop-chamfered mantel-lintol above, adjacent newel stair, lit by splayed
window, with oak treads to west. This former principal room is now occupied
by 4 loose boxes with racks and trough. Trusses have raking struts to rafters

roof space. On north side of east bay of one storey range is an oak mullioned
window giving view into one bay rubble lean-to extension. A rubble cross-wall
with a low door separates the easternmost bay from the others. Trusses are
simple A-frame, 3 purlins with heavy ties and collars, that in the east gable
is rubble-filled. An important survivor with many interesting features
embodied in typical local L-plan-longhouse derivative.
