Remains of a mansion built by Sir Henry Compton in the reign of James I.
The ruins consist principally of 3 towers of 3 storeys each standing now
unattached to each other. Ashlar. The west tower is surmounted by an
ogee-shaped cupola with finial. The centre one, which was the entrance
porch with rooms above it, has the date 1631 in a lozenge above the second
floor window; a 4-centre archway with carved spandrels and dripstone over;
cartouche above this with cornice above it which is carried up to form
an ogee. The east tower is plain with one window on each floor. All windows
have stone mullions. The windows in the west tower still retain their glass.
To the north of the towers is a round-headed stone archway with a keystone
and imposts, and a portion of a wall on either side of it. AM
