House. Probably early C16 but may have earlier fabric. Roughcast rendered rubble and cob. Thatch roof with lateral rubble stack to rear with projecting bread oven.

Brick stack at right end. Formerly open hall and through-passage plan, the upper end possibly remodelled as a cartway with loft over. 1 1/2 storeys irregular 3-window range of C20 2-light casement 2-panes each above 2 plank doors, that at upper end inserted in former larger cart entrance. Two C20 2-light casements flank lower doorway with blued square recess to its left. Chamfered and stopped beam to hall, and spice cupboard dated 1758. One raised cruck truss with slightly cranked collar and 2 tiers of trenched purlins the truss now closed with lath and plaster partition but smoke-blackening extends to the loft timbers. The other truss over the lower end is boxed in but appears to be C17, with no signs of smoke-blackening.
