mostly restored. Three 6-light scratch-moulded mullioned and
transomed first-floor windows. Enriched early C17 carving with

other timbers are similar but mostly late C19. INTERIOR: now a

shows the ground floor to be coursed limestone rubble with
sash windows to the left and a 5-light stone-mullioned window

The original house is said to be the one that Judge Jeffries
lodged in during the trials at the " Bloody Assize".
