INTERIOR: ground floor much rebuilt and with imitation timber-framing. 2 bayed main range and 3 bayed cross-wing. Building sequence: (1) Late C16 main range of one and a half storeys, slightly cambered tie-beam and halved and bridled scarf joint in wall plate. (2) Early C17 cross-wing with tie-beam and curved arched bracing, raking queen struts above and face halved and bladed scarf in wall plate. Principal floor joists have lamb's tongue chamfer stops. (3) Later C17 roof of main range raised to level of cross-wing to create 2 full storeys. Rear bay of cross-wing probably rebuilt then, (rudimentary primary braced studding). RCHM, South Weald Monument 13, notes a principal stack `cross shaped and set diagonally' i.e. of early C17 type, no doubt contemporary with the cross-wing.
