Right-hand cross range extends front and rear with hipped roof

INTERIOR: not inspected but noted as having two C14 aisle
posts within the wall to the west of the entrance; roof
includes re-used smoke-blackened rafters. Plinth suggests an
original timber-frame, cased in brick. The presence of the
aisle posts and other details suggest that rebuilding took
place in the C15 or C16 with the addition of a solar room with
central crown post.
