Second half of C16. The date 1569 above east door is not original. Only
the east kitchen wing remains of a former U-shaped house. Most of the hall
section and the west wing were demolished in 1784. Built of red brick with
tiled roofs, 2 storeys plus attics, the central hall had a tall gabled porch
and the marking wings were connected by a wall with a gatehouse at the centre
enclosing a square court. The north gable of the remaining wing (like the
demolished west wing) is crow-stepped with tall ornamental moulded brick
finials with ogee-shaped caps, which were surmounted by wind vanes. (The
porch and dormers were similarly treated but none survive). The finials
rise from octagonal corner buttresses. There are moulded brick string courses.
The north end one bay and west side 3 bays have 3 and 4-light windows with
moulded brick hollow-chamfered mullions and transoms, and are surmounted
by shallow moulded brick pediments. The west doorway of the east wing is
similarly pedimented, with moulded architrave and round arch, the door is

to south-east. The house was extensively repaired and the interior modernised
in 1721-4 by John Buxton who was an amateur architect.
