Cottage. Probably early C17 or earlier, altered probably in C18 and
subsequently. Timber framed construction, later cased in large coursed
squared sandstone, with roof of stone slates (now coated) and pantiles. Two-
unit plan with added rear outshut. Two low storeys and 2 bays; south front
has 2 altered windows on each floor, those at ground floor vertical
rectangular and those above square. Ridge chimney. Right-hand gable wall
has glazed lean-to conservatory covering present entrance into outshut.
Interior: visible remains of formerly timber-framed building include 2 of 3
wallposts in the rear wall, wallplates in front and rear walls, tie-beams at
both ends and in the centre, and one pair of purlins; at the west end these
terminate on a light tie beam or collar approx. 1½ metres from the gable wall
(suggesting remains of former smoke bay or smoke hood). Stone staircase in
outshut, rising along outside of former rear wall (suggesting formerly open
structure, or ladder stair to loft).
