Manor farmhouse. C16 or earlier core with C17 alterations and a later 2-span

external stack, that to the right the heavier. A smaller external stack to
the rear. One original mullioned window is visible in the rear wall. Good
C17 dog-leg stair up to first floor with turned balusters and square newel
