Cottage. Late C17. Colourwashed rendered cob on stone rubble footings, corrugated
asbestos roof gabled at ends, formerly thatched. Axial stack, left gable end stack
capped below the asbestos roof.

hall/kitchen backing on to the passage and a small unheated inner room. The lower
end may originally have been unheated. The hall/kitchen has a 2-storey shallow bay
to the front under a catslide roof. The eaves have been raised, probably in the C19
when the lower end stack may have been added forming a parlour.

open fireplace with a timber lintel which has been modified in the C20. Unchamfered

the hall. Roofspace not inspected but may be of interest.
