crosswings project to left and right, the former being
partly rebuilt in C20 brick. Central gabled porch. 3 or 4
C20 casement windows on each floor. Brick ridge chimney
stack. Similar windows to rear. Interior: most of the roof
structure, a considerable amount of the floor structure and
some of the original timber framing remains intact. The
floor beams may have been inserted into an open hall in the
late C16. Tie-beam trusses have inclined struts and show
