- II*

Farmhouse, C15 with additions and alterations of the C16, C17, C18 and C19.
Banded flint and ashlar, banded flint and rubble, hipped, tiled roof with
stone slate margins. Brick stacks to ends and at intersections of ranges.
Front range is C17 and C19 refenestration. 2 storeys, 5 irregular bays.
Mainly 16-pane shashes. 4-panel part-glazed door second bay from right. Rear
range consists of a C15 hall with a C16 service range separated by a cross-passage.
The western end of the hall was rebuilt in the C18 and there is a C19 extension.
In the re-entrant angle between front and rear ranges is a projection, probably
a former stair turret. Southern facade has 2 and 3-light stone mullioned C17
windows, irregularly placed. The C18 doorway has a lugged, moulded architrave
with a pulvinated frieze bearing a block with a carved swag, the whole surmounted
by a swans neck pediment.

Internally the eastern passage is much altered but retains parts of 2 chamfered,
shouldered doorways and a contemporary pierced wooden grille. The partition
between hall and passage is of panelled oak and has a moulded doorway and a
brattished cresting. The hall contains an C18 fireplace. The ceilings have
chamfered beams. The roof to the hall is C15 of 3 bays with moulded arch braced
collars with curved struts rising above the collar. The purlins are chamfered
and windbraced. Between each main truss is a subsidiary arch braced collar truss
springing from the middle purlin. The ceilings are carried on deep chamfered beams.
