Manor farmhouse. Late C14 with C18-C19 cross-wing to left. Extensively
modernised mid C20. Timber framed and plastered with a roof of mainly glazed
black pantiles. 2 storeys. Various mid C20 casement windows; mid C20 boarded

Internal and gable stacks, both with small shafts of mid C20 date. The main

open truss has an arch-braced cambered tie beam supporting square or cruciform
queen-posts, part now cut through and removed; on the upper tie beam is a
cruciform crown-post with broach stops and 2-bay solid arched bracing to the

of the roof components are heavily sooted. Remainder of house greatly
modernised: a little studding in the upper walls and one bay of a C16 inserted
ceiling. Former moated site.
