The inner plank door is studded and has strap hinges. The right-hand return wall of the cross-wing has a modern window with plain reveals, formerly an external entrance to the parlour. Chimneys on south wall of cross-wing and in line with front door, the latter having coupled caps. Interior. A lobby-entry is formed by 2 back-to-back hearths, now blocked. The central room has 2 axial chamfered main joists with scroll stops and an ovolo-moulded firehood bressummer. The cross-wing also has 2 chamfered main joists. On the 1st floor landing is a 3-light mullioned window of plastered brick, now blocked by a later extension. The roof over the central room is said to have 2 upper-cruck trusses. The house is described and illustrated in detail in Watson, R.C. and McClintock, M.E., Traditional Houses of the flylde, Lancaster, 1979. They suggest that the northern room is earlier than the rest of the house and that a pattern visible on the north wall in burnt headers before the house was pebbledashed represented the date 1603.
