altered late C20. Rendered over rubble and possibly cob, concrete tiled roof, rebuilt

3 bays; all late C20 windows, central recessed door with C20 moulded surround;
large raking buttress on south gable end at junction with outshot. Interior not seen,
said to contain chamfered lintel to north gable end fireplace, chamfered stone jambs,
curing chamber left and winder stairs right rebuilt to extend over bread oven; chamfered
beans with double step and runout stops and scroll stops; timbered framed partition to
cross passage, chamfered peaked doorframe to southern room, rear door way almost flat
