both floors: 2-, now 3-light, with mullions, now chamfered on outer face but
originally flat faced, in plain stone surrounds. Shaped kneelers, gable
coping left, end stacks, that to left corniced. Outbuilding, now house, to

and spine beam with cyma stop. Parlour, to right, has inserted fireplace.
Staircase and service room in rear outshut behind parlour, stairs replaced.
Outshut roof supported by curved principal rafter truss known as a 'Niddleton Truss'
probably derived from a cruck form. Queen strut trusses to remainder of
roof. The first floor of the outbuilding may have been a bothey as well as
a hay loft as it was lit by substantial windows from the beginning. The
addition of the outshut dairy to rear left and the lean-to cowhouse to far
right suggests that the number of cows and the scale of dairying were
expanding in the C18-C19.
