Farmhouse, formerly manor house. Mid C16, with major alterations, principally
of early C17 and 1887. 2 storeys and attics. The main C16 range is aligned
north-south: timber-framed and plastered. Plaintiled roof with an axial
chimney, the shaft rebuilt in C19 red brick with diagonally-set square flues.
Mid C19 small-pane sashes at 1st storey, mid C20 casements below. C20 gabled
entrance porch with panelled door. A 2-cell cross wing added early C17 to
south end: timber-framed, encased in brick and extended both ends in red brick
in 1887, as dated on west gable; all external features described below are of
this date. Pilasters and bands of gault brick in the Estate style of Great
Finborough Hall. 3 gablets on the south side, with sash windows. Two axial
chimneys of red brick: one with a diagonally-set cruciform shaft, the other
with circular twin shafts of moulded terracotta tiles forming diaper
patterning in high relief. Concrete lintelled openings with C20 small-pane
casements. The C16 range has some massive unmoulded framing exposed, and
clasped-purlin roof much altered in C19. The C17 range has altered arched
fireplaces and a butt-purlin roof, the framing mainly concealed. Two arms
remain of a probably medieval moat. Queen Elizabeth I is believed to have
visited in August 1578.
