considerable C18 alterations. Red brick outer walls and timber framed
core; plain tile roof. 5 bay range aligned north-east/south-west facing
south-east. One storey and loft. 5 segmental-headed doors; large
2-leaf door to the right. Small segmental headed ground floor windows.
2 boarded loft openings to the left. Central gabled loft door. Stone
mullioned windows to the rear. Attached gate pier to the south-west
of square section with pyramidal cap, which flanks one side of a blocked
entrance to the outer courtyard at Hamstall Hall (q.v.). Interior.
Timber framed cross walls and some close studded framing to the rear.
Cambered tie beams and v-struts above the collars, 2 pairs of purlins
