lead cames tied to wood stanchions and old glass.
Interior: a blocked former doorway (now with window) opposite existing doorway

rafter trusses with cambered collars; large-scantling, diagonally-set ridge-
piece; wall-plate and 2 sets of chamfered, scarf-jointed trenched purlins;
2 tiers of chamfered, curved wind braces, most surviving; smoke blackening
throughout; at truss near inserted stack, traces of original partition wall
below collar (which would have formed one side of the through-passage); left-
hand gable is of wattle and daub. C17 features include the central stack
with its ground-floor fireplace which has a deep timber lintel with chamfered,
triangular-arched soffit; the compartmented ceiling in central room with deeply-
chamfered beams; and the flooring over the 2 right-hand rooms (altered).
