gable end stack and one ridge stack, formerly at gable end of C17 house.
Chamfered timber lintels over 2 late C17 three-light wood mullioned and
transomed windows to right wall and to rear; also at the rear are 2 late C19
two-light casements, a sash, one inserted door of c.1980 and the blocked doorway
to the late C17 wing. Interior: Panelled shutters, 2- and 6-panelled doors, some
with moulded architraves. Early C18 bolection moulded fireplaces to left room
(probably reset), wood bressumer and chamfered and stopped beam to centre room,
cased beams to right wing. On first floor is a plank and stud partition dividing
the passage at the front of the house leading to the early C19 staircase in the
right wing. Dog-leg with landing staircase with closed string, stick balusters
and turned newel. Late C17 three- and two-bay roof to right has collar trusses

garden wall bond brick and has a semi-circular arch over decorative wrought-iror
gate; similar wall attached to right in Flemish bond linked by a low brick wall,
rebuilt in late C19, with 6 piers and a central iron gate. Manor Farmhouse is a
good example of a late C17 yeoman house extended in c.1770; it is evident that
the original front of the late C17 house was to the rear.
