Notes about this historic site

1 The front of the house is now bricked, but the W side and rear are timbered. There are two wings at the rear of the house but the timbering is not identical. The house stands on a stone plinth and has a central chimney stack with a panelled shaft. The upper floor levels are different and at the front the W window is lower than the rest. In the 18th century an extra room was added to the E of the house. The original front door is retained and it has moulded panels and ornamental strap hinges. It is marked as building No. 39 on the 1550 – 1650 map in this book.
