evident. W cross-wing of 2 bays with jowled posts and original
central partition seen on first floor with step-stopped
chamfers and tension bracing, roof of wind braced side purlin
form. Central block - ground floor passage and opposing doors
imply the site of the cross-passage behind present front door.
Upper floor raised to 2 storeys in timber phase, probably C17.
Central stack probably provided at same time (now much
altered). E cross-wing of 2 bays, wall plates with edge-halved
and bridled scarf joints, simple undecorated central
crown-post with thin 2-way bracing. Although of differing
construction, the E and W cross-wings could be close in date -
mid-C16, the east being the earlier. There was, no doubt, a
ground-floor central hall, only the plan remains though, in
the later structure. Rochetts and the barn (qv) form a group.
