remodelled C19 and has staircase and fireplaces of this date. Roof of left wing
altered in C20 but remains of two blades of raised cruck are built into C20
brickwork in the attic, Barn interior not inspected, P. Woodfield suggests that
the C15/C16 window in the left wing is in its original position with an area of
late medieval walling around it "which probably formed part of the original
house which was relegated to farm outbuildings" when the present house was built
to the south in the C17.

Northamptonshire Archeology 16, 1981, p.169).
