Raised eaves. Large rendered lateral stack at rear and another lateral stack at rear with rebuilt shaft. Also rebuilt stack at left end. Plan and development: 3 room and through passage plan, the lower end to the right and stairs inserted later into passage. Lateral stacks at rear of hall and lower end.

Lean-to on right hand lower end. Rear (west) has corrugated asbestos sheet lean-to roof to outshut and scantle slate roof canopy to left. Interior: Solid wall between hall and inner room. Hall fireplace blocked. Lower right hand room has fireplace with chamfered timber lintel with run-out stops. The roof over the former hall has one surviving truss, possibly smoke- blackened. It has straight principals and holes for threaded purlins. One blade of similar but clean truss at higher left end. The other trusses are later and have collars lapped and pegged to face of the principals. Note: It seems that at least the hall may have been open to the roof originally until it was floored, the eaves raised and reroofed possibly in the late C17 or C18. According to the deeds the property was sold in 1690 by John Trist of Hernaford (qv) to Francis Edmonds. The deeds are in the possession of the owner.
