Hall including forecourt.
wall and gatepiers)
House. C18, C19 and C20 structure which conceals timber-
framed crosswalls of C17 and earlier. Rendered walls with
graduated stone slate roof. 3 bays and 2 storeys with a wing
which projects to the rear. Picturesque C19 porch between
bays 2 and 3. C19 and C20 window openings some of which, on
the front, have eared architrave surrounds with rosettes
moulded in the lintel. Bay 1 projects slightly. Bow window
to rear. Ridge chimney stack in brick. The timber-framing of
the 2 principal crosswalls remains largely intact as do some
of the chamfered floor beams with stepped stops. A tie-beam
and collar cruck truss with wattle and daub panelling forms
the party wall to No. 169 (q.v.). It is completely visible
right to the apex of the roof and makes a notable feature.
The wing which projects to the rear also retains original
floor and roof structures (possibly of C17).
