Farmhouse, possibly manorhouse, now cottages. Probably early C17 with C14
fragments, re-modelled early C19. Limestone and marlstone rubble with some
limestone-ashlar quoins and timber lintels; Stanesfield-slate and Welsh-slate
roofs with brick stacks. 2-unit through-passage plan with crosswing and rear
wings. 2 storeys plus attic. Main range has, to extreme left, the passage
entrance and has a second plank door between large 3-light casements; first
floor has similar fenestration plus a 2-light casement over the passage door.
Cross wing to left, which projects to rear, has a straight joint with the main
range and has C20 fenestration. Rear of main range is largely obscured by 2 low
wings but retains a continuously-moulded pointed C14 archway at the rear of the
passage. The rear roof slope has a stone-slate covering. Interior: large open
fireplace backing onto through passage; massive stop-chamfered spine beams. Roof
to main range has 2 rows of butt purlins and no ridge beam. Through passage may
be on site of a former screens passage; mutilated doorway from passage to
crosswing say be a second C14 archway. (V.C.H.: Oxfordshire, Vol.XI, p.251;
