Interior: is largely the result of C19 and C20 modernisations but some original

wall there is a tiny blocked window to the original stair; a plain oak frame
containing rectangular panes of leaded glass. Roof is not accessible but the bases
of straight principals show, from the probably original A-frame trusses.
