Detailed account of the farmhouse. A three room cross-passage house with a barn adjoining the western end. The roof structure is of mixed types, and part of a mutilated end cruck survives. Hulland suggests a possible date of circa 1400 for the house, with modifications in 17th century (when the hall was ceiled) and the 19th century.
