House. C14, extended late C16, part refaced late C17 to early C18 with further
mid-C18 and mid-C19 alterations. Part coursed sandstone rubble with ashlar
dressings, part timber-framed and faced with brick. Plain tiled, multi-gabled
roofs with parapets and ball finials at gable ends and large brick ridge stacks.
Asymmetrical plan comprised of C14 cross-wing and porch aligned north/south
with late C16 east wing and later additions largely to east end. Two storeys
and attic with dormers. Main south elevation: composed of three ranges: 1.
a three-bay stone range (part of C14 structure); 2. a four-bay brick-faced
range; 34 a taller two-bay stone range. Windows are mainly C19 casements. At
the base of each gable are C19 human and animal head corbels. 1. The left
bay has a 2-light window on both floors and a gabled dormer with a lunette
window. The central bay has a two-storey C19 Canted bay window with a hipped
roof and a similar gabled domrer with a lunette window. To the right of the
bay window is a C14 window of two ogee-arched lights (not in situ). The right
bay is formed by the gable end of the C14 cross-wing and has a ground floor
stone mullioned and transomed window and, partly within the gable, a large 3-
light mullioned and transomed window with a two-centred head and reticulated
tracery. 2. This range has gables above bays 2 and 4; bay 3 is a chimney bay.
Some windows have original gauged flat heads. In bays 1 to 3 are two windows
on both floors, an inserted doorway in bay 1 with a segmental head, half-glazed
door and fanlight and there is an attic light in the gable. Bay 4 has a C19
hipped-roofed two-storey canted bay window and also an attic light in the gable.
3. This range has a central gable. In the left bay is a 2-light ground floor
window and a 3-light first floor window. The right bay has a 5-light stone
mullioned and transomed window on both main floors. There is an attic window
of three lights with a round head and intersecting glazing bars partly within
the gable. Main entrance remains in C14 north porch and has a four-centred
archway with ballflower mouldings and a hoodmould. Above are two cusped ogee-
arched lights. Interior: main ceiling beams are chamfered. Study has plank-
and-muntin panelling with a brattished cornice. Dining room has a fireplace
with moulded stone jambs and carved lintel. The ceiling has foliated plaster
decoration. The attic is recorded to retain the C16 decorative framing of the
east gable. There is an oak dogleg staircase with turned balusters in the central
range (probably C17). The house originally contained a chapel and is believed
to have once extended south to enclose a courtyard. (RCHM Herefs II, p 14-15,
