Inn, now house. 1682 on datestones. Limestone rubble with wooden lintels; old
plain-tile roof with brick gable stacks. L-plan. 2 storeys plus attics. 4-window
front has renewed cross windows to both floors plus the entrance, to left of
centre, in a C20 porch. Datestones between first-floor windows are inscribed
"16", "0/WI" and "82". Roof has paired stacks to right and is hipped to left,
returning over the rear wing with a roof dormer facing left. Left side has a
4-window range of similar renewed cross windows including a stair window; all
have C20 lattice glazing. Rear gable has a stone parapet, paired brick stacks,
and single-light windows, some blocked. C20 extension in angle of ranges.
Interior: large open fireplace with bread oven, partly rebuilt: heavy
stop-chamfered beams; upper flight of C17 dogleg stair with heavy turned
balusters; first-floor fireplace with curved interior, herringbone-brick reredos
and brick flat arch; butt-purl in roof with jointed rafters. Probably built as a
farmhouse for members of the Deeley family. Ceased to be an inn in 1900.
