The room to the right has an open fireplace with an oak lintel chamfered to the rear; the lintel is so high it may have been raised. This room has a chamfered crossbeam, early C18 raised-and-fielded panelling below the dado rail and repositioned C19 wooden segmental arches flank the fireplace. The room to the left has C19 repositioned panelling and fireplace; all the doors to this side have 4 panels. The stairs, to the centre against the former rear wall, are C19. C19 A-frame roof except C17 plastered truss with daub infill to left. The attic has wide elm floorboards and a C19 plank screen dividing the stairs from the rear wall.
