C20 board door with C20 wooden lintel between right bays. Over door is a C18 carved stone tablet carved with military trophy, almost certainly from Bourton Place. Another small square tablet below eaves between left bays carries simple motifs from the Hungerford arms.

Interior has C17 stop-chamfered spine beam in left bay, winder stair in right bay on axis with stack, and altered trusses with cranked principals.
