There is a good early C17 plank entrance door with panelled outer face and the
original moulded doorframe. Over the doorway a simple lean-to hood. Internal
and gable end stacks to the main range, both shafts rebuilt. The main range
comprises part of a former open hall with a queen-post roof. Both tie beams

shafts. Queen posts of cross-quadrate section; arched-braced cambered
collars. A small portion of the moulded and crenellated dais beam survives.
Inserted ceiling with heavy bridging beam and chamfered joists. Moated site.
