E. Rose (NAU), 16 August 1983.
Plan (S2) in file shows ground floor on typical three cell plan with intrusion into central space, but owner states that the wall between service rooms is now 20th century, although set below original beam. Attic floor to parlour cell alone makes one wonder if this was possibly a hallhouse.
