Manor House. Late C15/early C16. Partly rebuilt/extended c1690 for Colonel J.
Graham. Wet-dashed rubble on plinth. Graduated slate roofs with projecting
eaves. Diagonally-set rendered chimneys. Mainly 2 storeys with attics.
Asymmetrical plan. Western block is oldest surviving part. Central block and
eastern cross-wing added; plaster wall panel (originally on ceiling?) gives
initials I. & A.B. (for James & Agnes Bellingham?) and date 1538 but details are
identical to late C16 plasterwork at Levens Hall and date should probably read
1583. Symmetrical 4-bay east elevation has part-glazed central door with
mullioned and transomed 3-light window, under hoodmould, to either side; four
3-light windows above. Windows throughout probably C19 (with majority of

windows to south elevation of western block: Ground floor window has 2
segment-headed lights, 1st floor window has 3 ogee-headed lights under
hoodmould. Interior mainly C19 with some earlier studded plank doors and a C17
