Pantiled roof with gable ends, lower ridge level to left end. Painted stone rubble stack with bread oven projection at left end, and axial (formerly gable end) stone rubble stack towards right end. Plan: variant former 3-room and cross-passage plan, with heated rooms to each end and small unheated pantry to left of former cross-passage. In C20 the former staircase at the rear of the cross-passage , and the partition to the lower side of the passage were removed. At the same time a second entrance was made direct into left-hand heated room, which was reduced in size by enlarging the former pantry and creating an axial rear passage to connect the 2 end rooms. An extension of one room plan was added at the right, lower end. The upper floor originally containing 2 rooms, had separate external access from the graveyard by a doorway at the left gable end, now blocked. Exterior: 2 storeys. 6-window range. C20 fenestration through- out. C20 gabled stone porch to extension, C20 doors to cross-passage doorway and towards left end. Initials HIH (?) inscribed on stone close to eaves of original range. Interior: Ground floor much altered in C20. Chamfered lintel to fireplace with bread oven at left end. Right-hand room has chamfered cross-beam and head-beam grooved to take plank partition incorporating central doorway to lower side of former passage. Unchamfered lintel to fireplace with bread oven. The timber surround to the gable end blocked doorway survives ta first floor, apparently unchamfered. Roof: Structure consists of 3 pairs of jointed crucks, said to be full crucks. Trenched purlins replaced in C20. Only middle truss has a high thin slightly cambered collar and is closed with an apparently original clay daub partition. No sign of smoke-blackening. - -
