Mid C20 door with semi-circular plastered panel over, probably once a fanlight. Internal stack, the base of the shaft rendered. External stack against right gable end, now mostly rebuilt. Good interior. Hall has close-studded rear wall; a large original window, now blocked, has 6 ovolo mullions. Axial bridging beam with ovolo moulding and recessed soffit; plain joists. Open fireplace with cambered lintol.
