Exposed timber framing includes sections of central truss to right of stack, with post and lower section of pegged arch brace in ground floor right clasping an inserted ledge beam to support the later first floor, and upper section of post on first floor with a pair of straight braces to a cranked tie beam, forming a pointed arch with roll-mouldings on underside. Wall to first floor right has central timber post with down-braces to a tie-beam above the kitchen wall and up-braces extending into the roofspace to support a section of re-used wall-plate containing a stop-splayed scarf joint with sallied butts and face keys of late medieval form; post and braces bear traces of smoke-blackening. C19 collared and trench-purlin roof. Single- flight staircase with turned newels and plain balusters dated 1872, the probable date for much of the C19 re-modelling.
