INTERIOR: the axial passage between the rooms (formerly leading through to the next house) is flanked by moulded beams with a cross-beam near the centre; all have ogee-stops, implying that the passage was in 2 parts. The front room has a chamfered axial beam flanked by a C19 planked door with fine wrought-iron strap hinges to the left and a 3-light window to the right. A deep chimney-breast to an open fire on the right-hand wall has a C20 pine bressumer replacing one of massive oak, parts are still in the garden. Stairs to the same wall to the rear of the passage curve to a landing with plank-and-muntin walling, probably repositioned.
