the inner rear wall of this crosswing has 2 pairs of incised crossed keys and
several roundels, also a 2-centred arch was said to be visible through the
plaster prior to recent repainting. The central hall is open to ceiling above
the modern staircase and has a 4 arm cross quadrant crown post with the base
splayed between the angles, circa 1370-1450, resting on a cambered tie beam. The
right crosswing and outshot have mainly C18 features visible, excepting jowled
storey posts and a heavy chamfered bridging joist. The walls to kitchen, larder
and stairs are all of C18 beaded boards and there are some C18 vertically boarded
doors with ironmongery. Details of rear room are covered by C20 decoration.
