Heavy square newels with carved, panelled sides and ball finials; strings carved with laurel leaves; heavy, moulded handrails; the space between handrails and strings filled with heavy foliage and roses, within which are some human figures. Some of the newels are initialled. [VCH]. Also incorporated into the new structure is an C18 hipped, tiled roof above a much-altered 3 storey, 4 bay range.
