Notes about this historic site

1 Medieval building, has a pair of crucks in each gable end, one pair exposed in the north end, and the other showing inside. The east front is later square framing. Central stack.
2 The two pairs of crucks are 20 feet apart, with a 9 feet lengthening, south of Southam.
3 The listed building description states that this cottage is thatched, however it now has a tiled roof. There is a modern extension to the south and east, but this does not appear to interfere with the earlier structure.
