House. Second half of C14 with early C17 additions. Restored and extended to rear 1972-73. Timber framed and plastered with a plaintiled roof. 2 storeys and attic. The house comprises a former open hall of raised-aisle form together with storied service and solar ends. Windows mainly mid C20 casements; some C16-C17 windows with diamond and ovolo-moulded mullions, and the upper part of an original diamond-mullioned hall window at the rear. Mid C20 door into service end. 4 gabled dormers in each roof slope. Modernised interior with most of the structure exposed. Both original cross-passage doorways survive, together with the paired doorways into the service rooms: tall have 2-centred arches. Evidence for original screens between the cross- passage and hall. The raised-aisle structure is substantially complete. The queen-posts of the open truss are of cruciform section, the heavy arched braces to the cambered tie beam meeting to form a 2-centre arch; square crown post with pronounced double jowled head (an unusual feature) and 2-way bracing to the collar purlin; arched side ties to the top plate (one concealed). The roof is largely intact, all components being sooted. The open truss has traces of the original red ochre decoration. Late C16 inserted floor with chamfered joists, those at the lower end supported on an additional bridging beam parallel with the original one which carries the open truss. Stack inserted into solar, against upper end of hall. The solar end was extended by one bay in early C17 and the attic floor supported on upper crucks.
