Farmhouse. Early C17, later C17/early C18 rear extensions. Uncoursed limestone
rubble; gabled stone slate roof; stone external end stack to right; C20 brick
lateral stack to front. 3-unit plan. 2 storeys. 2-window range in right half of
front. Timber lintels over early C20 half-glazed door and C20 three-light
casements: segmental brick arch over similar C20 window right of door. Rear
service wings of similar materials flank central mid C18 brewhouse, of limestone
rubble with brick dressings and hipped old tile roof. Interior: 3-unit front
range has chamfered and stepped ogee-stopped beams throughout: transverse
partitions have chamfered and stopped doorframes: collar-truss roof with clasped
purlins and windbraces. Rear range has stop-chamfered beams, early C18 fielded
4-panelled door and brewhouse open fireplace. Valuable survival of a 3-unit plan
with original partitions and doorways. Has a moat on 2 sides and had a
drawbridge until 1841: the manor house on the site decayed in C16.
