House; C16 in 2 stages. 2 storeys, 3-cell plan with cross-passage entrance.
Timber-framed and plastered. Pantiled roofs, once thatched. C16 or early C17
axial chimney of red brick. C20 casements. C20 entrance porch, gabled and
pantiled, with framed and boarded door; another C20 glazed door at cross-
passage position. A rare example of a C16 house with a rear aisle, which in
this instance is an alteration. The narrow original house contained a smoke-
bay, a fragment of whose coupled-rafter roof remains. In later C16 the lower
rear wall was removed and the aisle added to the hall and service cells. The
upper floor was rebuilt. A parlour block was added, with close-studding,
diamond mullioned window evidence and a coupled-rafter roof. A large
lintelled fireplace built in C16 within the old smoke-bay has a lintel from a
timber-framed chimney of intermediate date. Evidence for arched cross-entry
doorways of both phases.
