Full description

Early 17th century lobby entrance house, basically complete but much altered.
See report (S1) in file.
Architect's drawings (S2) in file.
E. Rose (NAU) 3 February 1986.

January 2010.
Timber-frames house with a thatched roof and a modern pebble-dashed exterior. The gable-ends are masonry replacements in the 18th and 19th centuries. The house has an off-centre axial stack with an original winding stair to the east. The house would originally have been a lobby entrance house. The suggested dates for the building are circa 1640 for the north end and circa 1660 for the parlour bay. Permission has been sought to remove a stud partition, which was inserted at an indeterminate date to provide a pantry.
