Farmhouse, now house. C14 or C15, remodelled C17 and late C19 with later
additions and alterations. Roughcast brick encapsulating timber frame;
slate roof. Long hall range, formerly open to roof, in 4 or 5 framed bays
with cross-wing added to left in C17; twin-gabled range to rear on right
is probably also C17, but may be earlier;late C19 gabled range projecting
to front on right. 2 storeys. Late C19 horned 4-paned sashes, 2 to
each floor, to right gabled range and late C19 casements, also 2 to each
floor, to left gabled range, all windows with segmental heads. Open
lean-to supported on brick pillars between gabled ranges has windows
beneath to left and right (latter infilled) of C17 nail-studded plank door
with fleur-de-lys painted strap hinges, which marks position of original
cross passage. Prominent integral lateral stack with top rebuilt in late
C19 or early C20 brick to front wall of hall range immediately to left of
left gabled range and large extruded external stack with C20 shaft to back
wall of hall range. Twin-gabled range to rear has integral end stack to
right gable; C20 stack to left of right gabled range in angle with hall
range. Late C19 brick lean-to to left of left gabled range. Interior.
Several C17 chamfered - ceiling beams to ground-floor rooms and timber frame
in right wall of cross-passage. Repositioned staircase (possibly originally
of open-well type) has late C17 barleysugar balusters, moulded handrail and
carved decoration to newels and risers; C17 rectangular oak panelling
below is also not in situ. Parts of collar and tie beam trusses of hall
range exposed on first floor but more visible in roof space with extensive
smoke blackening towards right end, especially around possible former louvre
at junction between hall range and left gable of twin-gabled rear range.
Through purlins and straight windbraces. There is no smoke blackening in
roof to left of cross-passage suggesting that this part has always had a
first floor and was probably the service end. Collar and tie beam trusses
also to left gabled range (C17 cross-wing).
