floor have poppyheads above the ogees. The windows are sashed, with
curved glazing bars beneath the heads. The doors are paired and have
plain stone surrounds. Above is a re-set stone with 3 shields carved in
relief. The upper 2 are inscribed 'W' and 'T'. The lower one has a
flower motif. The farmhouse is of 4 bays. The window to the right of
the door has plain reveals. The one to the left is of 4 lights,
mullioned with outer chamfer and inner hollow chamfer. At the far left
is a window with plain stone surround and square mullions, of 3 lights.
On the 1st floor are similar windows of 3 lights, 2 lights, 3 lights and

with blank tracery in relief, having cinquefoils with panel tracery above.
Under the central arches are the monograms of Christ and the Virgin Mary.
Chimneys to the right of the left-hand bay, between the house and cottages,
and on the gable of the right-hand cottage. At the rear of this latter
cottage is a C17th window surround, now with no mullions and partly blocked.
The interior of the farmhouse was not accessible at time of survey but was
said to retain no features of interest.
