The interior of the main range has jowled posts, and a doorway with plain doorhead to the W (service) bay; the wide wood-burning hearth leaves the original cross-entry unobstructed, and still in use. There is a full-length underbuilt jetty to the S; the axial beam is chamfered and unstopped, and the joists are plain and of horizontal section. The parlour/solar crosswing is entered by a doorway with thin Tudor doorhead. The joists are of horizontal section, roll-moulded to the N, plain to the S, and the beam is moulded. The roof of the crosswing is of queen-strut construction, repaired. Roof of main range inaccessible, but apparently much repaired. No explanation is apparent of the anomaly by which the main range was originally jettied to the S, the crosswing to the N. RCHM 24.
