replacement timber lintels. Original roof, 2 bays either side of cob crosswall, and
carried on oak A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars. Left (south-

well-preserved single phase farmhouse with an interesting transitional plan.
From the right (north-east) end of the frontage and plastered cob wall on rubble
footings with pitched pantile roof extends north-eastwards including a square-headed
arch and returns forward (south-eastwards) to meet nearby stables (q.v.)
