Abstract/Summary

The building was surveyed on 20 August 2015 by the SANHS Building Research Group (Exmoor and West Somerset). It was noted to be a cross passage house with hall and inner room, with an extension to the rear. A small flying freehold over 13 contains roof trusses suggesting this was the original length of the roof; a ground floor connection here may have led to a service room. At the northeast at first floor level is what appears to be an old party wall with a true cruck frame built up against it. The next truss along is a jointed cruck frame and has infill of wattle and daub; other trusses along this range are obscured by the ceiling and walls. Remnants of another jointed cruck frame are within the rear extension. The cross passage reportedly contained cobbles.
