Unusual central truss of raised base cruck construction, consisting of chamfered tie-beam (supporting first floor), slightly curved chamfered blades and collar, and parallel pegged principal rafters. Ground-floor room with large spine beam running front to back. Formerly divided into 2 rooms (see mortices on underside of spine beam and remains of stud wall with tension brace).
