House, formerly Inn. Dated 1580 over C19 front door but may be early C17;
altered C18 and restored 1891 (date over porch). Rubble with large roughly-
shaped quoins, cut dressings; graduated stone slate roof. L-plan. 2 storeys
+ attics, 5 bays, slightly irregular. Right-of-centre 1891 porch has elaborate
studded door under flat-pointed arch, with stone canopy on moulded corbels with
carved heads, 2-light window above. Flanking bays have 3-light mullioned-and-
transomed windows, those on 1st floor with hoodmoulds. 3-light attic windows
with hoodmoulds in gabled dormers with ornamental finials; end bays have single-
light 1st floor windows. All windows small-paned casements in recessed, chamfered
surrounds, and are 1891 replacements of sashes, except for 1st floor far right
and attic dormers. Coped gables with ornamental finials; 1891 stepped-and-corniced
end stacks.

Left return shows two 2-light windows (that to right 1891) and, set forward to
left, rear wing with altered C17 ground-floor window, and old chamfered light
in attic dormer.

Interior largely remodelled 1891. Heavy transverse ceiling beams and joists with
stopped chamfers, probably original, in dining room. Blocked doorway, with
chamfered surround and flat-pointed head, leads to rear wing. Central closed-
string stair of 1891. At 1st floor level old 2-light window opens into small
C19 extension. Main roof has old collar-beam trusses with applied C19 chamfers
and minor Gothic detail. Rear wing formerly of greater extent; barrel-vaulted
cellar beneath adjacent yard.
