remainder of 2 storeys. SE elevation. The SW crosswing is jettied, the wall
below the jetty clad in red brick with an oriel window of 7 fixed lights and
one wrought iron casement, ovolo moulded, early C17, and on the first floor
a similar window, restored, flush with the wall. 3 leaded casement windows,
C20, porch with glazed 4-panel door and carved bargeboards with trefoil
piercings anda group of 3 Gothick windows with 4-centred arched heads, leaded

SW crosswing is a restored original window, early C17 with 2 ovolo-moulded

elevation are C20 leaded casements. The date 1424 is inscribed in modern
plaster in the gable of the SW crosswing. The floor in this crosswing has
exposed joists of horizontal section. The inserted floor in the hall consists
of an axial beam, plain-chamfered with lamb's tongue stops, and exposed joists
of deep section supported on clamps, originally plastered to the soffits. In
the C19 this house became a lodge to Pettits Hall, and much of the treatment
of the SE elevation dates from this phase.
