the stack. C20 leanto added along rear wall.

out stops, dressed rubble jambs and shallow shelf at the rear. The central room has
rough closely spaced ceiling beams. An original chamfered wooden doorframe with
peaked head leads from the central room to the left-hand one. Visible on the 1st
floor are the feet of substantial straight principal rafters which may be C17 but
further examination was prevented by lack of access to the roof space at time of
