room to the west of the stack has chamfered main beams with
later trimmers inserted to support the attic floor. The jowled

solid braces which support a crown-post, now within the attic.
The crown-post is tall, plain and of rectangular section,
braced 2 ways to the collar-purlin only. All rafters

The eastern bay and chimney-stack may be of slightly later
date with the collar-purlin set at a lower level than in the
rest of the roof. The attic storey was inserted in the later
C17 and the floors have their original wide oak boarding.
