-- II

Farmhouse. Early C17 main range with c.1700 cross-wing to right, flush at the
front. Set forward of the wing is a smaller C19 addition. C18, C19 and C20
alterations. Main range is timber framed, partly plastered and partly faced
in colourwashed brick. Cross-wing of brick, nearly all colourwashed. Rear
gable end rebuilt c.1900. Plaintiled roofs: old tiles only on the outer slope
of the cross-wing. Ridge tiles. 2 storeys with attic to wing. Mid C20
casement windows without glazing bars. In gable end of cross-wing, adjacent to
the later addition, a half-glazed C19 door and C20 open wooden porch.
Internal stack: base with inset panels front and rear; sawtooth shaft with C20
cap. Side wall of wing has a large segmental-headed window, partly lighting
the stair. To right of this is a curious arched recess with moulded surround,
raised springers and key. Blind window panel above. Interior considerably
altered with little of structure visible. In the wing is a good early-mid C17
closed-string stair with vase balusters and square panelled newels; half-
balusters and panelling against the wall. This stair has almost certainly
been brought here from a larger house. In C18 the attic was used as a Roman
Catholic chapel by a branch of the Fox family who lived here. A raised
gallery with various sections of re-used balustrading still survives; the
pulpit and other fittings were removed in C19. Extending south east from the
house is part of a medieval moated system.
