flanked by C20 bow windows. C20 sashes with cement lintels above. End stacks.

spine-beams on both floors; kitchen (back) door ledged and battened on large
'T' hinges; probably C17 oak-panelled doors with butterfly and H-shaped hinges
to rooms and cupboards on both floors and to cellar; dog-leg stair with splat
balusters, moulded hand-rail and newel. The date 1762 said by a former owner
to have been inscribed on chimney breast, but now covered (NYCVBSG Report).
Principal rafter roof of reused timbers (NYCVGSG Report). Room added to rear
of wing originally a forge (now part of house) and retains, inside, large flue.
On a moated site on which an earlier house, Old Hall, was rebuilt in 1406 but
demolished by 1736 (VCH, p 167). The stone and perhaps panelling, in the present
building was probably reused from the earlier house.
