Full description

Department of Environment, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV334373.

Interior: inner room was largely rebuilt circa 1972. Hall has a c16 oak side-pegged jointed cruck roof truss of large scantling, but evidence of smoke-blackening cannot be verified because roofspace inaccessible. Large volcanic stone fireplace with chamfered oak lintel and inserted bideford cloam oven. Roughly chamfered axial beam probably floored hall in c17. Circa 1972 stairs to rear of passage. Service room apparently refurbished in late c17-early c18 with chamfered and runout stopped cross beam and rubble fireplace now with replacement oak lintel. In the cottage the half beams across each crosswall have hollow-chamfer and ovolo-mouldings with keeled step stops, and volcanic ashlar fireplace has plain oak lintel, maybe a replacement. Stair turret projecting to rear includes a repositioned early c17 tiny oak 2-light window. Roof over service room and cottage is c20. C17 panelling and a small early c17 oak 3-light window with trefoil-arch heads were removed circa 1972, the panelling sold and the window removed to withy windle cottages, puddington (doe).
