ovolo-moulded timber lintel with convex stops, now partly blocked, and a
chamfered cross-beam with straight cut straps. Hall to left has lateral
fireplace at the back with a chamfered timber lintel, its stops possibly
buried and a brick-lined oven. The hall has a chamfered cross-beam without
stops. The first floor land roof space were not inspected but the roof was
