T-shaped plan of 2 units, main range and cross-wing. EXTERIOR: 2 storeys. NE front elevation, all windows C20 casements, ground floor 2 windows of 3 lights, first floor 3 windows of 2 lights. Early C20 red brick stack in front of roof apex at junction of the 2 units. Rear, SW elevation, old unit masked by C19 and C20 additions, main range first floor, single-light window with leaded diamond panes, cross-wing, first floor 2-light window. To rear of main range, C19 red brick addition, now flat roofed, with C19 stack at junction with timber-framed block. C20 door, with single upper glazed panel and C20 single light casement window, broad C19 segmental arch, also C20 single light casement in C19 segment headed opening. C20 door with 2 large glazed panels at junction of C19 and C20 extension to SE. Later lean-to on NW side of C19 extension; roof cuts diagonally across rear of cross-wing. SE end elevation. C20 3-light casement above C20 extension. NW end elevation. Wall exposed above C20 extension is of C17 brickwork cladding over timber-frame, now colourwashed. C20 2-light window. INTERIOR: ground floor much rebuilt and with imitation timber-framing. 2 bayed main range and 3 bayed cross-wing. Building sequence: (1) Late C16 main range of one and a half storeys, slightly cambered tie-beam and halved and bridled scarf joint in wall plate. (2) Early C17 cross-wing with tie-beam and curved arched bracing, raking queen struts above and face halved and bladed scarf in wall plate. Principal floor joists have lamb's tongue chamfer stops. (3) Later C17 roof of main range raised to level of cross-wing to create 2 full storeys. Rear bay of cross-wing probably rebuilt then, (rudimentary primary braced studding). RCHM, South Weald Monument 13, notes a principal stack `cross shaped and set diagonally' i.e. of early C17 type, no doubt contemporary with the cross-wing. Single storey C20 additions added to NW and SE end not to be included in the listing.
