2006. One wall of older section stripped revealing a 17th century two storey flint and brick elevation, later regularised in the 18th century and altered in the 20th. The roof was originally thatched. The original building seems to have had a lobby entrance but not to have been of three cell plan, however the centre of the wall is recessed between brick quoins for an unknown reason, almost as if a Wealden house had been encapsulated, although that is unlikely.
(S3) in file.
E. Rose (NLA), 23 August 2006.

Examination of the interior found evidence that the northeast end is an addition; possibly the southwest end of the original block was rebuilt at the same time; but the house is still very much a mystery as little is visible on the interior. See (S4) in file.
E. Rose (NLA), 16 October 2006.
