VIVAS. The right-hand ground floor window opening has a flat arch with voussoirs.

opening, the other windows are circa early C19 sashes, all with 12 panes.
Interior: plain interior with earlier features probably hidden; C18 panelled inner
porch doorway; circa 1900 stair. There was a C17 or C18 plaster ceiling in the
right-hand room until a few years ago (since fallen).
