Passage door towards right end under C20 thatch-gabled hood. Roof is half-hipped to right and gable-ended to left and carried over the top of the stack. Secondary door left end and C20 window of leaded panes. Rear includes a small light with old leaded glass and some small blocked window embrasures. Interior: the oldest structure apparent shows in the roof. 2 C16 closed trusses at western end. The western, over lobby-inner room partition, may never have been filled above collar level as roof appears smoke-blackened either side. C18 or C19 roof over hall, passage and service end. On ground floor any passage screen and hall-lobby partition have been removed. Cob crosswall to service end. Service room has plain-chamfered axial beam. Hall has C17 crossbeam, chamfered with scroll stops and contemporary rubble fireplace, its oak lintel has plain chamfer on slightly curved soffit.
