Farmhouse, now 3 dwellings. Probably c.1600, with later addition to rear,
altered. Large sandstone blocks brought to courses, with quoins, stone
slate roof. Long rectangular range of 4 bays, probably originally
unequally divided into a 2-bay hall range with storeyed ends; rear wing to
centre (probably a later addition). Two storeys; at the junction of the
3rd and 4th bays, a moulded round-headed doorway (slightly to the right of
a ridge chimney); to the left, a recessed 2-light window with a chamfered
mullion, lowered sill, and a hoodmould (possibly originally a firewindow),
an inserted window above, beyond these a king-mullioned recessed hall
window of 3 + 3 lights, with a hoodmould, and at 1st floor above this 2
deeply recessed 3-light windows; at the left end the 1st bay has a recessed
3-light window with hoodmould, an inserted door beside it on the right and
at 1st floor a 3-light window with flush mullions; at the right-hand end
the 4th bay has an altered window on each floor, the upper with one flush
mullion, and at the gable end a huge external chimney stack. Rear:
chamfered doorway to 4th bay (in line with the round-headed door at the
front), and a 3-light flush-mullion window above. Interior: mostly
altered, but roof trusses include a large collar truss with raked struts
from the beam to collar (in Wood Nook Cottage) and an open truss with
soffit-brace to principal (between 1st floor windows of hallrange); 2 pairs
of purlins (some with tongue-stopped chamfer); doorway in rear wall of 1st
bay (leading to kitchen) with broad segmental-headed chamfer.
