rendered brick; stone tile roof. Two storeys; 2 bays. Ground moor with 2-
and 2-light windows. First floor with two 5-light windows. All windows with stone
mullions and surrounds. Brick dentil frieze. To the left a single-storeyed
extension with door and a 2-light mullioned window to the hall. Inside, the hall
has panelling said to come from Witley Court; it includes some perhaps of the C17
and some of the C19 and incorporates the initials H H and the date 1888 and a
shield of arms with the motto 'Honor virtutis Praemium'. In a modern extension at
the back, three C18 windows with intersecting Y-tracery in iron said to come from
Quinton toll house.
