central keyblock, retaining original studded plank door; central 3-light

cross wing is rubble at ground floor, with some rendered timber framing above,
and has a projecting chimney. A post survives in the angle of the projecting

original house, of which the massive open fireplace survives on the right gable
wall of the existing house. Rear has further casements and the first floor of
the cross wing is in rendered timber framing. Interior not inspected, but noted
