GV II

House, early or mid C16, with major alterations of early C18 and later. Part
of the winter house built for the Woodhouse family of Crowfield Hall (see also
Items 8/15 and8/17). 2 storeys. Timber-framed and plastered on a high plinth
of tarred brick. Hipped plaintiled roof with axial and rear chimneys of red
brick. The main (west) elevation has C18 windows with flush frames: 3 early
C18 small-pane sashes at 1st storey, and of late C18 below. C20 entrance door
with small panes, and another of late C18/early C19 with 6 panels on south

right (the parlour block, now known as Old Dower House, is contemporary but
structurally independent, and is included separately as 8/15). The hall was
originally of one storey, but ceiled; the main beams have good roll-mouldings.
The walls were raised and a new roof built in C18. Some C17 wainscotting.
