brothers in the 1630s. Brick built with stone dressings, plinths, architraves,
keys, quoins, coping etc. English bond.

windows over bar and transom casements (mostly lead glazing). Linked by

and 4 smaller openings; band and parapet over with 6 blind oculi above spandrels of
arcade parapet with medallion motif repeated inside courtyard (except over West
range - demolished but retaining arcade). Modern cottage in north-west
corner. South side has projecting coach-house with wide arched entrance and blind
oculi in spandrels, and open pediment treatment to gable; mounting block to left;
it projects to south with stone and flint chequerwork and brick block cornice.
The medieval barn forms the east range. 8 bay arcade in pairs with 3 weathered
stone buttresses. 4 doors. Centre left: good panelled doors, upper panels
curved. Stone imposts, keys and oculi (open) to parapet. 4 rainwater pipes
