House, C15 or early C16. A quite-complete example of 3-cell open-hall house.
1 storey and attics. Timber-framed and plastered. Thatched roof, hipped at
the left-hand (service) end. Axial C17 chimney of red brick, altered c.1800.
Eyebrow casement dormers. Mid C20 small-pane casements and thatched gabled
entrance porch with boarded door. The 2-bay open hall has a central truss
with an arch-braced cambered tie-beam. The crownpost above is octagonal and

mullioned windows, some with square and some with diamond mullions. An upper
floor was inserted into the hall in lace C16 or early C17 and a chimney placed
against the cross-passage. Evidence remains for service-room doorways and the
