Full description

21 October 1980. Visit.
House, directly south of church.
Large, timber framed.
Two storeys, thatched, quadruple-angled stack towards west end. Upper windows on north now have wood mullions and transoms, and lower ones wooden pediments, but these could be recent imitations.
Two small windows also on ground floor.
Exterior suggests late 16th/early 17th but this does not rule out older work inside.
E. Rose (NAU), 21 October 1980.

Mullions are ovolo.

Stopped beams, winder staircase and straight windbracing. Listing (S1) confirms late 16th century date. Newspaper cuttings (S2) in file
