A fine C15 "Wealdon" type house. Timber- framed and plastered with the end bays
jettied on the 1st storey and the roof carried over in line with the front of
the jettied bays, supported on brackets. Casememnt windows. Roof thatched, with
projectinggables. The hall had an upper storey inserted during the C16.
The original cambered tie beam and a good crown post. A good fireplace was built
C15-early C16 with 3 arched niches above the lintel and a wall painting, a 4 ft
medallion with the representation of "Angus Dei" with a lamb, halo, crucifix and
pennant. The painting, originally in the hall, now is in the upper storey. It
suggests that the house may, at one time, have been a priest's house, possibly
connected with Chipley Abbey in the adjoining parish of Poslingford.
