8-light chamfered mullioned window with 9-light window over to 1st floor with
closer spaced mullions. To right of windows disturbed stonework. Right hand

Single storey outshut to rear set between gabled wings.
Interior: Heavily jowled post on stylobat survives to rear of through-passage.
Housebody has scarf jointed spine beams, evidence of former bressumer removed
when the large hall window was built. It would appear that there was a single-
aisled timber framed hall with an added stone cross-wing, probably early C17.
The hall was then encased in stone in 1671. C. F. Stell, p.64-5, 76.
