In south gable a blocked doorway below and blocked window to first floor: C20 windows in north gable: extension to rear. Interior not seen, but reported is a 3-room cross-passage plan with single-room rear wing of original date, with remains of 3 jointed crucks, two smoke blackened, and some cob walling at the rear: hall fireplace blocked, as is section of surviving stair alongside: south room has a six-section beam and panel ceiling, the panels of unusual size but apparently unaltered - the room, now used as a store, retains an earth floor; wing housed kitchen, with fireplace, brick oven and traces of a curing chamber: some carved initials of C17 and C18 to hall fireplace.
