over basement. Dentil brick eaves cornice. Large former external
brick lateral stack to east and external brick lateral stack to cross-
wing at south. West front: 1:1 windows; 3-light segmental-headed
wooden casements; 2-light wooden attic casement in cross-wing; C20
two-light wooden casement replacing door in return of cross-wing; C19
lean-to outbuilding and porch to left with glazed door and boarded door

windows to left; lean-to infill addition in angle to right with 2 first-
floor casements flanking central blind window, 2 ground-floor segmental-
headed blind windows to right and half-glazed door to left with C20
gabled brick porch. Interior: square-panelled timber framed cross-

closely-spaced uprights and chamfered ogee-headed doorway; C17 corner
fireplaces; fine early C18 dog-leg staircase with landing, closed
string, turned balusters, moulded ramped handrail, square corner newel
post and top and bottom newels consisting of clusters of 4 balusters;
probably early C19 corner cupboard on ground floor with arched head and
probably early C19 arch at top of stairs; first-floor C18 doors with
2 raised and fielded panels and L-hinges; C17 roof with collar and tie-
beam trusses and single and pairs of purlins. The house was known as
the New House in the C17 and was first so named in 1597. A number of
C17 alterations are recorded but it is known that the house was
extensively repaired shortly before 1817 and much of the external
walling probably dates from around this time. V.C.H., Vol. VIII, p.195.
