Farmhouse. C16 and early C17, in several phases. Timber framed and plastered
with a roof of glazed black pantiles. 2 storeys. A main range with flanking
cross-wings, the smaller cross-wing to the east being the earliest section; to
the north of the central range a disused C17 porch with a jettied upper floor;
a further C17 gabled addition to south. Late C19 and C20 casement windows
with large panes. To south west of central range a red brick porch dated
1875; this has a 4-panelled door with 2-centre arched head. In the same
position to the north a C19 6-panelled raised and fielded door. Rectangular
axial stack above these doorways. Internally much of the structure has been
exposed. In the west wing; where the timbers are still concealed, there are
arched brick fireplaces on both floors. The east wing, perhaps early C16, has
a former open truss with arched-braced cambered tie beam which once supported
a queen-post roof; some good framing with reversed bracing and 2 diamond-
mullioned windows.
