alterations. Brick with some timber-framing and brick infill; slate roofs

a semi-circular head. Beneath the dormer is the main entrance which has a
six-panelled door with a transom light. Between bays 3 and 4 are two blocked
doorways. Partly timber-framed wing to rear left. It has four panels from

the collar and a V-strut above. There is a lean-to outshut to the remaining
rear elevation of the main range. Interior: C18. Oak dogleg staircase with
moulded hand rail and turned balusters in entrance hall. Kitchen to the east
said to contain some circa 1650 panelling. Also room in oldest part recorded
to have moulded oak ceiling beams dividing the space into square panels.
