The house has important remains of a c16 house with C17 and C18 additions, partly brick and partly timber-framed and plastered. The house is said to have been rebuilt by Edward Thursby in 1579 and the only part remaining is the present west wing, which was probably the north wing of Thursby's house. 2 storeys and attics. Built on an L-shaped plan with wings extending south-west and south-east. The south-west front is an interesting example of C16 work (although at present dilapidated). It is of red brick with a moulded brick plinth and octagonal buttresses at the corners (originally terminated by pinnacles) .The facade is divided by moulded brick string courses between the storeys. 1 window range, mullioned and transomed windows with leaded lights. The ground and attic storey windows are 3-light and the lst storey window is 5-light. The ground and lst storey windows have brick pediments. The windows in the remaining parts of the house are mainly double-hung sashes with vertical glazing bars. Roofs tiled. RCHM (6).
