Cottage. Probably late C15 or early later C16, addition to right of C16, C19 and
C20 refenestration. Rubble and cob, roughcast and colourwashed, hipped thatched
Plan and development: the cottage is the inner room of a 3-room and through-passage

originally an open hall house.

glazing bars. Further C19 casement on the ground floor. 2 C20 casements to right

the other room divided in half in the C20. The first floor is virtually featureless
except there is a very good example of a hip cruck to be seen, it is not known if
this is smoke-blackened or not.
The hall and lower end of this house is occupied by the adjoining house to the left,
No.18 (Plovers Barrows)(q.v.)
