A 3-room and through passage plan along road with inner room to left (north-west end). C18 extension to service end (most of No 2, Silks Cottage). The subdivision of the property, C19 and C20 plaster and wallpaper and some added partitions hide the original layout. Now 2-storeys throughout. 6 window front.

Massive lateral stack projecting from hall and Silks front door immediately to right. The large recess at first floor level right of the stack is thought to represent position of former 2-storey porch projecting into the road over a now-blocked main door. Smoke-blackened roof over hall supported on side-pegged-jointed crucks. Some original framing exposed in roofspace. C16 moulded and stopped beams in hall. Cob-walled outshot behind hall. Much early work is hidden particularly in Silks. Left front corner and stack rebuilt circa 1930 and No 2, Silks Cottage renovated and enlarged in 1983.
