Interior: Substantial remains of timber-framed house with close studded wall to arcade plate and fully framed wall between chamber over hall and cross-wing. No sign of communication between chambers suggests open hall. Through passage has ogee timber arched doorway with chamfered surround into housebody which preserves heck post, firescreen with attached settle, bressumer resting on original outside post. Inside fire area is spice cupboard with plaster needed surround and decorative plaster over. Chamber over preserves remains of original wall plate, tie beam with canted timbers for firehood braced to post and morticed to soffit for firehood. This house preserves largely intact a late medieval timber-framed hall and original solar wing. The hall was enlarged in the stone casing and it is remarkable that the earlier timber structure was preserved in the chamber over the housebody. A rare and important survival.
