rendered shaft. Stack with bread oven projection at rear gable end.

the rear which formerly was the kitchen and which has a separate entrance from the
left side. The front room is heated by the lateral stack, the staircase entering
this room at the rear and dividing the smaller middle room from the entrance hall
passage. In the late C19 a single storey gable-ended kitchen range was added to the
rear right side forming an overall L-shaped plan.

Interior: some old plank doors survive mostly with H-L hinges. A single C18 turned
baluster to balustrade at head of stairs. No access to roofspace, but the feet of 3
trusses with straight principals suggest the C18 roof structure is intact.
