Massive open fireplace, the chamfered lintel slightly raised in the C20, with chamfered Beerstone ashlar jambs with unusual drop-shaped stops and a massive rounded bread oven which projects into the room and rises to the ceiling. Chamfered crossbeam to the wing. C19 joinery in the added block. Roof: Side-pegged jointed cruck trusses to the main range with mortised collars and trenched purlins, no evidence of smoke blackening visible upstairs and no access to the apex at time of survey (1988).
