House, now inn and garage offices. Probably C15, extended in early C17 with
later additions and alterations, principally of early C19 and mid-C20. Timber
framed, partly of cruck construction, and brick, now largely roughcast, plain
tile roof. Open hall of 2 unequal bays aligned north-east to south-west
extended in early C17 by addition of a box-framed bay to north-east; 2 brick-
built bays added to south-west and eaves of whole raised in early C19. 2
storeys; dentilled eaves cornice; framing: exposed to C17 addition, 3
square panels from cill to wall-plate with V-struts from the collar; irregular
fenestration, six C20 casements below eaves with one small fixed-light window
to right and 5 late C19 and C20 casements to ground floor; entrances through
C20 doors to left and right; prominent ridge stack roughly central and end
stack to left. Interior: parts of 3 true cruck trusses with tie beams and
collars survive, central one being best preserved, all with apexes destroyed;
timber framed cross-wall (later) on ground floor beneath central truss.
