Original plan obscured by later developments; but appears to have consisted of a 3-

hall, which was in the C17 extended by the addition of a larger parlour at the right
end. The passage was axially partitioned, probably in the C19, creating a small
room at the rear, which was extended circa 1930 partly into the hall. Steep C19
staircase immediately to right of passage running up front wall. The lower end was
also extended by the addition of 1-room and integral leanto at the left end. The
farmhouse was divided at the lower side of the passage and at the upper end of the
hall when converted into 3 occupations.
