central hall and unheated service room to right. 2 storeys;
5-window range. C20 door and porch. Flat rendered arches over
C20 windows. C17 outshut to rear left, heightened in C20 and
adjoining C20 porch. Interior: early C17 section to left, of
one-unit plan with rear outshut, has plaster panel with relief
lettering reading IHTH/1529, chamfered beam and open fireplace
with cloam oven in front room, which also has two C17 chamfered
wooden doorframes to rear outshut; left side of outshut contained

rear of stack; chamfered beam in room to right; two C17 A-frame

an important marriage.
