House, formerly a farmhouse. Circa late C15 or early C16 with C19 extension at
south-west end. Roughcast stone rubble and cob. Thatched roof with gabled ends,
C19 south-west end has higher roof of slates. Rendered stack with set-offs.
Probably originally a 3-room and through passage plan but much altered and south-
west end entirely rebuilt or added in C19. North-east gable end stack with oven. 2
storeys. 4-window range. C20 casement with leaded panes. First floor right hand
in small half dormer. Porch to left hand of centre. Circa C19 outbuilding project-
ing at right-angles to left, now part of house. Interior: hall has one cross beam
and one half beam with unstopped chamfer and large square section joints. Chamfered
hall fireplace beam has ogee steps and ovens, and chamfered beam set in end wall to
side of stack. Lower south-west end has 3 square section cross beams. First floor
has blocked fireplace with timber lintel in north-east end wall. Jointed cruck
truss can be seen in first floor room at north-east end. Roof at north-east end
2 bays entirely smoke-blackened including thatch. Jointed cruck trusses with
threaded purlins and morticed apices and collars. The lower end of roof has been
raised, but some old trusses are reused (but not smoke-blackened) and have morticed
apices and are morticed for collars and threaded purlins which are missing. It is
impossible to see whether the inside of the north-east gable end is smoke-blackened
because the inserted stack is built against the end wall or the wall was rebuilt
when the stack was built. The original plan of the house is uncertain, but it was
certainly open to the roof at the north-east end. Whether this was the hall with
the higher north-east end of the house missing or just a 2-bay hall without an inner
room is not clear. Or possibly the lower end of the house was at the north-east end
and has been demolished.
