door under pent slate roof between windows 2 and 3 at cross-passage. Left end
has large lean-to. Gable stacks. Back wing not of special interest. Interior:
narrow cross-passage with thin partition each side and stone floor. Left room

window opening; chamfered and stopped ceiling joists and large transverse beam.
A second stair at back. Many thin plank doors, that under stair with early

stage. Although much restored, with C20 windows, the fabric still retains much
of historic interest.
