rubble and cob. Corrugated iron roof with half-hip to left end but much of original
thatch survives underneath. Rubble stack heightened in brick to right gable end
with slated weatherings. Brick ridge stack and tall lateral front rubble stack
heightened in brick. Possibly originally 3 cell plan with the lower end demolished
and the original cross-passage taken into the former hall heated by the lateral
stack. The through-passage is now located nearly centrally and runs through to the

1/2-glazed plank door. Catslide roof to rear outshut with brick stack to right side,

Interior: C17 straight-headed doorway with chamfered and stopped surround to base of
winder staircase and two C17 doorways to head of stairs with chamfered surrounds and
slightly cambered heads, and plank door to right side. Part of C17 truss survives
over upper end. Inaccessibility of part of roof prevented close inspection, but
appeared to be smoke-blackening to heavy truss over former hall. C17 plasterwork
overmantel to chimney piece to right gable end above a chamfered and scroll-stopped
lintel. Plasterwork is of 2 symmetrical panels with foliated cornices and small
square emblematic centrepieces, the panels divided and flanked by stiles with
