renovated c1982. Internal timber-framing, coursed sandstone rubble,
C20 tile roof. Cruciform plan in present form incorporating 2-bay
single-aisled hall block in rear wing and single bay of earlier
cross-wing to front right. Rewindowed: casements with glazing bars.
Entrance front: 2 storeys, 3 windows. Quoins. Gabled central
part breaks forward; C20 door with plain stone lintel; 1st-floor
window beneath eaves band. Wing set back to each side has window

part of left return with 2 reproduction wood-mullioned windows.

Interior: ashlar fireplace with keyed arch in ground-floor room to

jambs of another fireplace (now bar). Timber-framing well-displayed
in 1st-floor rooms. In c1500 cross-wing: vertical and diagonal wall
studs, 2 king-post roof trusses with struts parallel to principals,
curved braces to ridge. In rear wing: 3 c1550 king-post trusses,
double purlins. Distinct series of carpenters marks to each phase
of framing. The hall block is particularly unusual in that it has
always been 2-storey with a 2-storey aisle.
