9 October 2007. Building recording.
Tripartite house aligned north- south. The north bedroom has a pair of upper crucks resting on the first floor joists, which date to the early 17th century. It has been suggested that the house was re-roofed in the 18th century, confirmed by the date '1765' chiselled into the principle rafter in the south bedroom.
