September 2001. Visited.
Timber framed three cell house. Stack has removed a tiebeam indicating that the parlour end is a rebuild, and thus the original house was probably a hall house. Suggestions of a former smoke bay.
Parlour cell of about 1600, remainder undated.

These finds show that 11th to 14th century pottery preceded the present house, but the clay hearth above them is not where the building survey suggested it might be. Is it for an intermediate stage of the house, or should the interpretation of the building be reconsidered?
