The wood-burning hearth facing to left is much rebuilt; the wood-burning hearth facing to right is reduced in width, but still wide; the mantel beam is chamfered with a similar stop at one end. The crosswing has an axial beam with C20 chamfers; plain joists of square section are jointed to it on one side with soffit tenons with diminished haunches, on the other side with unrefined soffit tenons. The first-floor room of the crosswing has a chamfered tiebeam with lamb's tongue stops, and is fully lined with pine panelling, late C17/early C18. Against the attic stair is a small area of guilloche combed plaster. The rear wing has a chamfered axial beam with lamb's tongue and notch stops, and a face-halved and bladed scarf in one wallplate. Simple edge-halved scarfs opposite each other in both wallplates indicate that it has been extended to the rear. A panel of stick wattle and daub is exposed behind glass. All the roofs are of clasped purlin construction. The newel stair may have been built against the stack originally, forming a lobby-entrance.
