replacement walling and additions, plain tiled roofs, hipped at east end.
Medieval plan; main range on west/east axis with hall of two framed bays,
through-passage bay and two service bays at east end and solar cross-wing

bay of hall has a south single bay extension which lies flush with the pro-
jecting cross-wing gable end, and the through-passage bay has a gabled porch
wing; large external brick chimney with tiled offsets and star-shaped shafts
at east gable end; other chimneys to main ridge and rear have similar shafts
but they are C19. Two storeys. Framing: two rows of close-set vertical
studding to each storey; cross-wing and hall wing gable ends have collar-
and-tie-beam trusses with queen struts; the first floor of the cross-wing
and the hall wing are jettied on curved brackets to the south elevation;
the first floor of the porch wing is also jettied with a moulded bressummer
carried on moulded brackets and the uppermost row of panels project still further
on a coved jetty. South front elevation: windows are all C19; hall and upper
service bay have 4- and 5-light wood mullioned windows with transoms, one to
each bay on both floors; porch has a wide plank and battened door flanked by
moulded timber posts, a 4-light mullion and transom window on the first floor
and enriched bargeboards; lower service bay has two cross-casements on each
floor; cross-wing gable end has a 4-light ground floor casement and a 6-light
first floor casement and a door to the lower right side. Interior,: roof and
main structure, including first floor and ceilings (at wall-plate level
throughout) are of one build; roof structure has collar-and-tie-beam trusses
with raking struts and a single row of trenched purlins. Fireplaces and
fittings all altered in C19. The house was the seat of the Talbot family.
The medieval features such as the plan, jetty construction and purlin/
principal jointing system were probably all inherited from the earlier
structure on the site.
