Interior was thoroughly renovated circa 1970 and many timbers were renewed.
Nevertheless the original layout is still discernable. Cob crosswall between former
cottages. Right cottage is now single room and at right (east) end a C17 cross beam
survives, it is chamfered with enriched step stops. Rubble fireplace also C17 with
chamfered and scroll stopped oak lintel and later bread oven. C17 roof structure
