and c1896. Random rubble limestone, mostly roughcast rendered;
ashlar chimneys; stone slate roof. Two-storey with attic; L-
plan with east cross wing. North front: earliest part is centre
of north front, two sets of diagonal ridge-mounted chimney shafts
indicating the original ends. Parapets to elevation with central
parapet gabled 2-storey porch having tall ashlar pilaster corner
buttresses topped by ball finials. Moulded round arched doorway
beneath entablature with flanking Tuscan pilasters; imposts and
keystone. Cornice above entablature rises over armorial shield.
Three-light cavetto mullioned casement above with hoodmould
continuous between buttresses. Ground floor cross-window to left
of porch, 6-light wide mullioned and transomed casement to right.
Upper floor 2 + 2-light to left, 3 + 3-light to right, all with
hoodmoulds. Projecting gable end of east cross wing to left
having gable-mounted chimney, and single 3-light recessed cavetto
mullioned casement to upper floor and attic. Flush gable to right

transomed fenestration. East elevation to east cross wing has 4
gables. Scattered and mixed fenestration, much restored. South

Larger gable with indications of altered openings is part of C17
enlargement; rendered projection at south west corner being part
of late C19 alterations. Interior: altered in C18 and late C19.
Ice house (q.v.) and dovecote (q.v.) to north.
