plaster cornice; the rear room has similar stop-chamfered
beams; the ceiling panels have reeded margins and moulded
fleur-de-lys at corners; the stone hearth-base of the corner
fireplace in the room above is visible. A damaged open-well
closed-string oak stair to the fourth and fifth storeys has
square newels, some altered, 2 substantial barleysugar

moulded rail altered in parts. The fourth storey front room
