Statement of Interest

19th century tooled margins on the lst floor gable parlour window and the replaced ceiling moulding suggest that either the window here was slapped in mid l9th century or replaced a former window. The 18th century lst floor bedroom chimneypiece, with curved lintel, is of a type common to the area.
