Farmhouse. C17 with considerable later additions and alterations. Timber-
framed with plastered infilling and uncoursed limestone rubble; slate roofs,

roof raised. 2 storeys; four 3-light casements, those to ground floor with
cambered heads; entrances to right under C19 cambered brick arch and through
part timber-framed porch between second and third bays from left. In the

of the original roof pitch are visible.
