Beyond straight joint corresponding with ridge stack, a 4-light stone chamfer-
mullion casement with hood over first 3 lights only, and a C20 two-light stone
mullioned casement in former door opening; above are two 2-light wood casements,
and a 3-light gabled dormer. The back has a 1½ storey extension far left, with

main part, with concrete slates, has two C20 gabled dormers, limewashed rubble

place at left end: building may have originated as a through-passage 3-cell
plan, but has undergone extensive modification; the roof is said to have been
replaced in part in 1926, and the name derives from a former use as recreation
room for the village. Set well down from and at an angle to the B4070 road.
