Farmhouse. C15, or possibly earlier, completely refaced during late C19.
Timber-framed core refaced with sandstone rubble. C20 tiled roof. Probable

entrance to north-eastern end of south-east front. Two storeys. South-east
front: three 3-light casement windows, those on the ground floor with cambered
heads, ledged door to right. Interior inaccessible at time of re-survey but
