House, in use as public house between circa 1900 and 1939. Late C17 in origin,
possibly extended or partly remodelled in the C18. Colourwashed rendered cob with
some brick patching; thatched roof gabled at ends; left end stack, stack on rear wall
to right.
The original plan is not entirely clear, the present arrangement is single-depth, 3
rooms wide, the 2 left-hand rooms under a lower roofline late C17 in date, the right-
hand room with the rear lateral stack probably C18. There is no sign of a cross
passage and a corridor has been created in front of the central room. A single-
storey building at the right end of the range, probably originally an outbuilding,
has been converted as part of the acommodation.
2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2+1-window front, the roofline lower at the left-hand end
with the eaves thatch eyebrowed over 2 gabled dormers. Front door at right of left-
hand block, further entrance into single-storey addition at right end. Fenestration
of 1-, 2- and 3-light small pane casements; ground floor window right, a 3-light
casement 4 panes per light, is an early C20 window datingfrom the period when the
building was used as a public house.
Interior The left-hand room has a late C17 cross beam with a narrow chamfer and step
stops. The fireplace has been rebuilt in brick with a plain timber lintel. The
right-hand room has a massive rough cross beam and exposed joists, the fireplace has
been rebuilt after a collapse with the original chamfered timber lintel with run-out
stops. Old wall and ceiling plaster survives on the first floor. The fixed bench
and dados dating from the use as a public house survive on the ground floor.
