- II*

Farmhouse. Probably late C15, cased in brick and re-modelled during
C17 with later additions and alterations. Red brick (random bond)
concealing timber frame, plain tile roofs. Roughly T-shaped plan;
former open hall apparently of 4 framed bays with cross-wing to east,
probably also of 4 framed bays; the latter was re-built in early
C17 when an external stack was also added at the upper (west) end
of hall and the whole floored over; gabled range in angle between
hall and cross-wing on north side probably contemporary with re-building
of cross-wing, late C19 brick lean-to below. 2 storeys and gable-lit
attic to cross-wing; south side: mid-C20 casements with mid-C19
segmental heads to either side of roughly central plank door under
mid-C20 gabled brick porch, one range of similar windows to each floor
of cross-wing; large external stepped stack to west gable end and
lateral external stack to cross-wing, small ridge stack re-built in
mid-C20 red brick at east end of hall range. Interior: top part of
plank and muntin screen dividing lower end of hall from former screens
passage visible upstairs; staircase with moulded handrail but balusters
removed also at lower end of hall; late C17 bolection moulded fireplace
on first floor serving external stack at west end of hall, several C17
panelled doors with cock's head hinges and contemporary oak panelling,
some with wheatsheaf moulding; 2 chamfered spine beams in ground floor
room at lower end of hall; roof structure not-examined, but several
of the trusses are said to be smoke-blackened, although now of butt-
purlin, collar and tie beam construction. The house was formerly
moated and the foundations of a stone-built chapel are said to have
been uncovered in the adjacent field to south-east in 1970s. V.C.H.,
VIII (1968), p.260.
