truss on first floor rises from this room but has been cut by insertion of bay window, peaked doorframe from head of
stairs now set to right in corridor on first floor. The timber frame partition appears to be similar to one at Lower
Combe, Pitminster illustrated in the VAG Report, unpublished SRO, 1980 on Rexton Farm Cottages (qv) it is possible that
a first floor room was jettied out onto the open hall from the now rebuilt end wall which might account for the gap
between the partition and the compartment ceiling.
