Doorway in third bay from left has 20th century door with pent-roofed hood above. Interior has been much altered, but early features undoubtedly exist under the plaster. In upper storey the right hand gable fireplace has a large carved granite surround with three-quarter-round moulding; on the lintel is carved the date 1665 in a shaped, spiky frame. Roof timbers are old, but plastered and boarded in. Other details: LBS No 439067.
