January 2001. Further stripping of house revealed that the end of the parlour chamber had been rebuilt in the early 17th century when the windows were remodelled. The 'screen' is in fact reset panelling moved when the service rooms were later extended; the house was originally on a lobby entrance plan. See further report.
