The interior has plain-chamfered axial beams with plain stops and plain joists of horizontal section in the 3 bays to the SW of the main stack, and original rebated floor- boards above. The central tiebeam is steeply cranked, with jowled posts and one arched brace present. The roof of the middle bays was originally crownpost construction, but has been rebuilt in clasped purlin form re-using the original rafters.
