the south wing has an oblong window with glazing bars at
ground floor, and its gable wall has a similar window at
ground floor and a rectangular 2-light casement above. The
rear wall of the main range has (inter alia) three 2-centred
arched windows at 1st floor ,that in the centre larger and

square window at ground floor of the re-entrant and a
rectangular window at 1st floor of the gable wall.
INTERIOR: the former housepart in the south bay has 2 lateral
beams, a muntin-and-plank rear partition wall, a large C18
rectangular fireplace with a corbelled lintel and moulded
surround including a moulded false keystone, and to the right
of this a square spice-cupboard with a fielded panel which has
incised lettering "D / R R / 1711"; the chamber above (which
is the room with the ceiling crossing the window) has a
muntin-and-plank enclosure of a former smoke-hood. The north
bay has been raised and remodelled.
The former barn to south is now integrated at first floor
level with the house.
