House. C15 open-hall and north-west cross-wing. Floor and stack inserted late

C19/early C20 gable dormer to main range and three-light wood casement in
segmental arch at ground floor. Late C19/early C20 doorway and half-glazed door.
Similar fenestration to gables of cross-wings. Interior: Evidence of open-hall

carpentered, halved at the apex and smoke blackened. In the roof over the
north-west cross-wing the roof structure with through-purlins is similar. Broad
stop-chamfered main beam inserted to C15 open-hall at ground floor.
