Field Visit (19 February 2015)

NT 81929 27930 Mid to late 18th century, two-storey thatched house with single storey wing to south, and mid 20th century alterations. The south wing is thatched in reed and has a turf ridge, which is extended at a lower level directly below the south chimney stack. Both the ridge and skews are netted, whilst the rest of the thatch has been left uncovered. The roof of the main building is thatched in the same way, however the thatch is hooded above the first floor window openings. The turf ridge along both sections of the roof has slighty deteriorated in places. The entrance porch on the east elevation has a pyramidal thatched roof with overhanging eaves, the raised ridge of which is netted and thatched in reed and scobed using hazel spars. The rest of the porch roof is left uncovered. The condition of the thatch as a whole is generally good, with only a few loose strands of reed in places.
