House, previously almshouses. Possibly C15 with late C16 additions.
Restored early 1960s. Timber-framing and brick with tile roof. Two storeys.
South front has cross-wing at left with exposed framing. On the ground floor
are two windows. Between the tie-beam and collar are a further two windows,
with V-struts above the collar. To the right is the main range, on the site
of the hall, which has been re-fronted with brick. On the ground floor it
has four windows. On the first floor are three. A C20 open porch covers
the door and the window to its right. Chimneys to right of cross-wing and
on right-hand gable. At the rear are three gables. The right-hand one is
the rear wall of the cross-wing and is framed in square panels with V-struts
above the collar. The two others are probably also late C16 additions; the
left-hand one is cased in brick, the middle one has framing similar to that
of the cross-wing. Interior: hall has inglenook and inserted ceiling with
chamfered beams. Framing of rear wall of hall exposed, with large curved
braces. The two end cruck trusses and central jointed cruck are said to be
visible on the first floor. (Charles, FWB: Medieval Cruck Building and its
