timber-frame with multi-gabled two-span slate roofs and large C17 brick
stack at centre of valley with blind round-headed arcaded panels and over-
hanging cap courses. Two parallel ranges aligned north-east/south-west;
northernmost range of four bays, with external rubble chimney and rebuilt
detached stack at south-west end, southernmost range of three bays. Two
storeys, attic and cellar. Framing: first floor of south elevations is
jettied on a moulded bressummer; the gabled attic storeys above the left
and central bays are similarly jettied. Framing is otherwise concealed.
Main south elevation: comprised of three gabled bays of southernmost range,
gables have moulded bargeboards and pendant finials. There are two C19
cellar windows and a ledged and battened cellar door.. The ground floor is
raised owing to the incline of the site and has a 3-light C19 casement, a
C17 window of four lights with ogee mullions and a moulded architrave,
and a central ledged and battened door with a moulded architrave, once
approached by a flight of stone steps. On the first floor are two C19
windows of three lights and similar C17 window to that on the ground floor.
There are shuttered square openings within the gables. Main entrance at rear
has a flat canopy on metal uprights and a C20 door. There are two similar
C17 windows in the rear elevation and also six original windows surviving at
the north-east end. Interior has some exposed ceiling beams, large fireplaces
to the central chimney and part of the original staircase which has panelled
square newels with shaped finials. (RCHM, Herefs, Vol III, p 43, item (2);
